The Cincinnati Reds have one of the greatest broadcasters in Major League Baseball, and that fact will hold true for a few more years at least, as the team signed the Hall-of-Famer to contract extension today:
“We are big believers in baseball on the radio, which is why we’ve built our Reds On Radio Network into one of the largest and most prolific in Major League Baseball,” said Phil Castellini, Reds Chief Operating Officer. “We are proud to have Hall of Fame broadcaster Marty Brennaman as the foundation around whom we build the rest of our broadcast team.”
Brennaman, 71, since 1974 has been the lead voice of the Reds on 700 WLW Radio. He joined the Reds radio team at the start of the 1974 season and for 31 years shared the radio booth with Reds Hall of Fame pitcher Joe Nuxhall.
Brennaman has also been elected into the National Sportscasters & Sportswriters Association Hall of Fame, the National Radio Hall of Fame and the Virginia Sports Hall of Fame.
