Marty Brennaman, Cincinnati Reds radio play-by-play man/legend, announced Wednesday that 2019 would be his final season. Brennaman has been the Reds' lead broadcaster since 1974 when he took over for Al Michaels.
Brennaman has won the highest honors a baseball broadcaster can. He received the Ford C. Frick Award from the National Baseball Hall of Fame in 2000. He was inducted in the National Sportscasters and Sportswriters Hall of Fame in 2005. He has been named Ohio broadcaster of the year 17 times – most recently earlier this week.
