Hawk Harrelson reduced his workload as White Sox broadcaster in 2016. But don't expect him to leave the booth anytime soon.

Harrelson joined CSN's Chuck Garfien on the White Sox Talk Podcast and discussed, among other topics, his future with the team. Harrelson told Garfien that he plans to be the White Sox broadcaster for four more years. And there's a specific reason.

"I'd like to go four more years. I’d like to go to 2020 because that would put me in a category that not many guys have reached.  I know Vin Scully has been there, Don Zimmer, Dave Garcia and maybe a couple others, but if I go to 2020 that would put me in a category of being in baseball for eight decades. And the reason I want to do this is for my grandchildren. That would be nice for them to have a grandfather who was in baseball for parts of eight decades, and if I go to 2020 that would put me in that category.

"Seven is not bad, but eight is something special."

Harrelson also discussed his thoughts on the White Sox rebuild, as well as the round of golf he played with umpire Joe West on the Podcast. You can listen to the entire interview right here.
