Kansas City, Mo. — The Kansas City Royals and Fox Sports Kansas City have announced they will not renew Frank White's announcer contract for 2012.
White, a Hall of Fame second baseman for the Royals, has been a game analyst for the Royals the last three seasons.
The Kansas City Star reports that White began working in a more full-time television role in 2009 after former broadcaster Paul Splittorff, who died this year, began having health problems.
White, a Kansas City native, won eight Gold Gloves and helped the Royals win the 1985 World Series championship.
He previously resigned as a full-time employee of the Royals organization in January.
