ATLANTA - Bally Sports South and Bally Sports Southeast has hired Brandon Gaudin to be its new play-by-play announcer for Atlanta Braves telecasts beginning with the 2023 MLB season.
“Today is the realization of a childhood dream,” said Gaudin. “I get to be behind the mic for the team I grew up idolizing. And the team who fostered my love for both sports and broadcasting. I’m grateful to both the Braves and Bally Sports for this incredible opportunity. I cannot wait to work alongside this team and talented broadcast crew.”
Gaudin has worked as a play-by-play broadcaster for FOX Sports and the Big Ten Network for the last seven years, broadcasting MLB, NFL and college football and basketball games.
“Brandon is the perfect fit for what we were looking for as the new voice of the Atlanta Braves on Bally Sports,” said Jeff Genthner, Senior Vice President and General Manager of Bally Sports South and Bally Sports Southeast. “His proven qualifications as a national broadcaster, coupled with his passion for the Atlanta Braves and city of Atlanta make him an excellent fit for our broadcast team. We are excited to welcome him to Bally Sports.”
“We welcome Brandon into the Braves family as well as our broadcast booth,” said Derek Schiller, Atlanta Braves President and CEO. “The Braves have had a legendary lineup of broadcasters throughout our history and we are excited to find someone who is familiar with our past from growing up a Braves fan and respecting those who came before him.”
Gaudin also serves as the play-by-play voice of Madden NFL for EA Sports, a position he has held since the video game’s “Madden NFL 17” title.
Atlanta natives might recognize him from his three years as the Voice of the Yellow Jackets, calling football, men’s basketball and baseball games at Georgia Tech from 2013-16 before moving on to network television. He has been an Atlanta resident ever since.
A native of Evansville, Indiana, Gaudin graduated as the “Most Outstanding Communications Student” in Butler University’s class of 2006. After college, he began his professional career broadcasting Minor League Baseball in the Los Angeles Angels organization.
Bally Sports South and Bally Sports Southeast have been nationally recognized for its coverage of the Atlanta Braves, winners of five consecutive division championships and the 2021 World Series Championship.
