CINCINNATI (AP) -Broadcaster Marty Brennaman signed a three-year contract extension to remain with the Cincinnati Reds through the 2010 season, team officials said Friday.
Brennaman, 65, has been the lead voice of Reds radio broadcasts since 1974. His previous contract, signed in 2004, was set to expire after this season.
He shares the broadcast booth this season with his son, Thom Brennaman, and former Reds pitchers Joe Nuxhall and Jeff Brantley.
Marty Brennaman was inducted into the National Sportscasters and Sportswriters Association Hall of Fame in Salisbury, N.C., in 2005, the same year he was inducted into the National Radio Hall of Fame in Chicago.
The Reds broadcaster also was a 2000 recipient of the Ford C. Frick Award from the National Baseball Hall of Fame in Cooperstown, N.Y. The award is presented each year by the Hall of Fame to a broadcaster for major contributions to baseball.
