Braves announce their Chip Caray replacement

In an unexpected turn this offseason, long-time Braves play-by-play TV announcer Chip Caray departed for St. Louis to become the Cardinals play-by-play announcer. The Caray family has been a part of Braves fans’ homes for nearly 50 years. Prior to Chip Caray, Skip Caray served as the play-by-play announcer from 1976 until his death in 2008.

With Chip Caray’s department, the Braves have been in search of a replacement, which was announced today as Brandon Gaudin will replace Chip Caray in the booth.

Gaudin may not be a household name in the industry, but his resumé is incredible. If his voice sounds familiar to the younger members of the audience, it’s because you’ve probably heard it quite a bit. Gaudin has served as the voice of Madden since 2017. He’s also broadcasted across the NFL, MLB, college basketball, and college football for Fox Sports. However, perhaps what I’m most excited about this move is that Gaudin is a die-hard hard Braves fan, just like all of us that will be watching.

Check out some of the tweets he’s let out since being named the official play-by-play announcer of the Braves.

A graduate of Harvard University, I have no doubt that Gaudin will do an unbelievable job replacing Chip Caray, and his long-time fandom of the Braves is the icing on the cake.

Welcome to Atlanta, Brandon Gaudin!
