For more than a decade Janus has been honing his craft as a sportscaster. His award-winning work has been featured on television, radio and the web. He has done play-by-play of football, basketball, baseball, volleyball, field hockey, softball, soccer, diving and lacrosse; working for FS1, Fox College Sports, ESPN2, ESPN+, the Big East, the CAA, Rush Media, the University of Delaware, the PSAC, iHeart Media, and the Wilmington Blue Rocks.
Janus got his start in sports as a 14-year-old selling programs and yearbooks for his local minor league baseball team, the Wilmington Blue Rocks. That entrance ramp turned into a marketing position in college, a media relations gig after graduation and eventually he became the radio voice of the team.
While getting his start in Minor League Baseball, Janus also broke into the college sports broadcasting business with his alma mater. He worked on the University of Delaware radio crew during his senior year in college as the on-site producer, and upon graduation became first the sideline reporter and eventually the color analyst for Blue Hen football as well as the play-by-play voice of UD women’s basketball. During his time with the Hens he worked two FCS National Championship Games and chronicled the college careers of Elena Delle Donne and Jasmine DIckey.
In 2017 Janus departed the Delaware football broadcast booth to become the play-by-play voice of the nationally televised CAA Football Game of the Week on Fox College Sports. Working alongside former Philadelphia Eagle Ken Dunek, Janus and his crew chronicled the premiere games in the best conference in FCS for three seasons.
That same year he began calling games for the Big East Digital Network, working women’s basketball, volleyball, field hockey, softball, baseball and soccer. He has also called conference tournaments for CAA TV since 2012, working primarily with men’s and women’s basketball, volleyball and field hockey, but also calling soccer and diving.
Janus served as the primary play-by-play announcer for the last two editions of the Senior League Softball World Series on ESPN+ and ESPN2.
His work has been recognized three times by the National Sports Media Association, as Janus was named the Delaware Sportscaster of the Year in 2014, 2017 and 2018.
He resides in Wallingford, PA (about 25 minutes outside of Philadelphia) with his wife, Kaili, and young children, Juiana and Jack.
