After 18 years in the booth, Chip Caray is leaving the Braves broadcast as the St. Louis native heads for a similar role with the Cardinals. For many in Braves Country, the Carays are all we’ve known. Skip and Chip have commanded the booth in Atlanta for what seems like forever, and there will not be a third Caray to take the reins (yet). According to Mark Bowman, Tom Hart remains the top finalist to replace Chip.

After much speculation surrounding Ben Ingram, the voice of the Braves radio, taking over broadcasts, he’s decided to stay in his role on the radio, where he is one of the best in the business.

Tom Hart should be a familiar face to Braves Country. He served as an on-field reporter and host of Braves Live from 2011 to 2014. However, he also served as a play-by-play voice for college football and basketball on ESPN during that time as well. He’s been on ESPN’s MLB broadcasts since 2020 too.

If Braves fans still aren’t familiar, maybe they recall Hart from his SEC Network broadcasts “SEC Saturday Night” with Jordan Rodgers and Cole Cubelic, which he has done since 2017. He’s incredibly well-versed; Hart is even one of the leading voices of ESPN’s NCAA College World Series coverage. Prior to that, he spent time at the Big Ten Network, Fox Sports Radio, and CBS College Sports.

There might not be a more qualified person to take over for Chip Caray than Tom Hart, and it looks like the Braves are keying in on him.
