Steve Berthiaume, Bob Brenly Are New Diamondbacks Broadcast Crew

Christian Petersen

The Diamondbacks have announced that former manager Bob Brenly (color) and ESPN anchor Steve Berthiaume (play-by-play) are the new Arizona Diamondbacks broadcasters.

As first reported by KTVK Sports Director Tim Ring, the ESPN and WGN personalities are set to join the Arizona Diamondbacks as broadcasters. Yesterday, Bob Brenly announced he would not return to the Chicago Cubs and WGN, further fueling the rumors that he would return to Arizona as the color commentator. Brenly worked as a baseball analyst for FOX before becoming a coach for the Giants and Diamondbacks. He led the Diamondbacks to their 2001 World Series championship. He returned to broadcasting in 2004 for the Cubs alongside Len Kasper.

Berthiaume's name first surfaced as a possibility last week. He has worked for ESPN in New York since 1999 and currently anchors both Sports Center and Baseball Tonight. While he has done only a few baseball games as play-by-play man, he brings with him national name recognition and a lot of television experience. He regularly tweets @SBethiaumeESPN.

A press conference at Chase Field officially introducing the new pair will not be until November 5th; it is expected to be carried live on Fox Sports Arizona.
