Hall of Fame play-by-play announcer, Marty Brennaman, has signed a three-year contract extension with the the Cincinnati Reds.
Marty Brennaman, 71, has been the voice of the Reds for 40 years, and took over as the lead announcer back in 1974 when he worked along side Joe Nuxhall. Marty has seen it all since joining the Cincinnati Reds Radio Network; he’s seen perhaps the best team in baseball history, the Big Red Machine, he’s also seen the 1990 Reds, a team that went wire-to-wire and won the World Series, and of course, he’s also seen the terrible Reds’ teams, but he still loves coming to Great American Ball Park, no matter how good or bad the team is.
Marty was very happy to sign his extension, saying “I am truly fortunate and look forward to broadcasting Reds baseball for three more seasons.”
Reds’ COO, Phil Castellini, said “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, we are proud to have Hall of Fame broadcaster Marty Brennaman as the foundation around whom we build the rest of our broadcast team.”
The Reds’ living legend also said to media members “to all the fans who make our network the best in baseball I say, ‘This One Belongs to the Reds!”
