Bigger roles for Brennaman, Kelch

The Reds revealed that Thom Brennaman will take over George Grande’s former role as primary play-by-play on Fox Sports Ohio. Jim Kelch was hired to take over Brennaman’s former utility man role on TV/radio.

There will be a story soon on the Reds site…Thom B. will be cutting back on national TV duty to spend more time at home with his wife and two young kids.

“It’s been a whirlwind and I’ve been blessed to have three fulltime jobs for a long time with the NFL on Fox, MLB on Fox, the Reds and the Big Ten Network. Like any other Dad, I want to watch my kids’ games, swim lessons and recitals. This situation gives me the opportunity to be home more on weekends. It’s a blessing to have the chance to do this. It’s a great job with talented people I’ve known for a long time and it’s in my hometown.”
