KANSAS CITY (AP) - 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.

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. The 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.
