Mlb Report Braves May Be Looking At Brewers Announcer
The Braves are considering Brewers radio announcer Jim Powell replace Pete Van Wieren, according to a person familiar with the situation. He was called Brewers games for the past 13 seasons alongside Hall of Famer Bob Uecker. The Braves had already lost the broadcasting legend Skip Caray, who died in August. When he reached his cell phone Tuesday evening, Powell refused to comment. Powell attended the University of Georgia and Georgia has asked to baseball games in 1985 and 1986. Van Wieren retired in October after 33 years in the Braves broadcast booth.
