    My guess is that whenever the Reds last home game is that will be his finale.

    Definitely the end of an era; Marty has been a part of my life from childhood and now into my 40s. Nobody called an exciting game better. I will miss hearing him on the radio.

    Re: Marty Brennaman: 2019 is my final year

    I feel like I just received a sign from above. I've recently been putting off some "adult" things I should be doing in my mid-30s (update my life insurance policy, shop for a minivan, cut back on the booze & pizza, etc) telling myself, "I'm still a kid at heart, I've got plenty time" and now the only voice of the Reds I've ever known is moving on. So many childhood memories.. It's time to grow up.

    But hey, I've got until the end of the season at least right?

It wasn't into the game at some point that this was a new and unheard of guy named Marty Brennaman who was now doing the games.

    Just as an aside, if not for the tragic death of Claude Sullivan in 1967 Marty may never had been the Reds announcer. Sullivan was the Reds PBP announcer from 1964-67. He died in December of 1967 as the result of throat cancer at age 42. If not for that he may well have been the Reds announcer well into the 80's and 90's.

    I love Jim Day. He has a sense humor and is relatable. He's a perfect fit for the Reds.

His issues with the "something else" came about when Joe stepped away. Joe had that "good ol' boy, homegrown, ah shucks" appeal to him that complimented Marty's side discussions so well.

    Anyhoo.... Happy Trails to you Marty, you've been the voice of the Redlegs before I was born, its going to be different not hearing you on those stale summer nights down the road. Better or worse, who knows, but definitely different..and missed. 45 years is a long road to hoe.
    Here's how long Marty has been broadcasting: I was a 19 year old college student during his first season. I'm now a 64 year old grandfather.

    Thin? I'm sure he means Thom. This is good news.

    So...broadcast team for 2020:

    TV: Day+Welsh
    Radio: Hoard+LeCure
    Swing: Brantley
    Stands: Picoro(sp?)

    Wow. that's BIG. Thom could go all National with Fox and Big Ten work a limited schedule. I wonder if his wife Polly wants to go back to Arizona.

    Marty said to Paul Daughterty that Tommy Thrall is coming up from Pensecola and could be " the guy"

    here's more from Marty

    The Reds had some guy from one of their affiliates fill in last summer but I can't remember who it was, but I wondered whether he was doing an audition.

    I'm hoping they do a wide search and look to become a bit younger on the broadcast side. Marty was 31 when he started, as noted in the news article WOY posted. With the exception of LeCure (who is now 34), everyone else is north of 50 - with Chris Welsh being my age. I don't know whether he's a grandfather or not.

    They had the Dayton guy come up for an inning or a game late in the season.
