This is the ever dry waterproofing 700 wlw minute with Marty when it's all said and done, How would you like Marty Brennaman to be remembered by Reds baseball? Well, I'd like to be remembered as being a guy who was credible because credibility has been very important to me, and I've been fortunate to be able to broadcasting games the way I want to broadcast it, And I'm sure that over the years I've said things that have made ownership cringe and and bite their tongue. But at the end of the day, they pretty much let me broadcasting game the way I want to, and And I think that the one thing that Williams broadcasters can have if you don't have any credibility, one people not going to believe anything you say. And secondly, they're not going to respect the fact that you have an opinion. So if I don't have any, anything else, I hope that 100 years after I'm gone, If this game is still being played, and my name comes up, people will say You know what he had credibility and and that would mean the most to me of anything.

"Well, the weather blowing through rock and it's times like these and police believe it. We're gonna keep you posted, but all the weather updates. We're gonna have multiple whether people on the air we're going to have traffic whenever we're going to be a spot on with traffic for the rest of the afternoon. Be with us because we have all the information the news departments all over it as well. Give you up to date with all the advisories, etcetera, etcetera. Right? But right now, Yeah, we was in a time like this. Let's think warm thoughts, man. Yeah, I think some warm thoughts. What we could all use right now is some Reds baseball and we have joined us. And he's a guy he's now the new Reds play by play guy for Fox Sports and and someone I've known for about 10 years and a guy who's so deserving of this. I'm so happy for him. And he joins us right now, John, say that John, Welcome the show, buddy. How are you? I am doing great. I am I am over the moon. Fantastic. Delighted to be talking to you guys and the coal Cincinnati. My home. Absolutely. So, John. I mean, your your story is out there a little bit. Just how I mean, You've been a grinder, man. I've seen it. I've followed you through it. Just just give up the everyone. Listen right now, a little bit of Just a background of kind of where you've come from, and kind of things you've done over the years to get to this point. It's you know, I tried. Somebody asked me the other day. How many places have you have you worked and lived. And to be honest, it was. It was a struggle. It was probably north of 30. Total employers and every step along the way. I loved it. I mean, everything I did every sport I called. Every team or network or station that I was able to. Ah, work for to call the game. So the when I worked sidelines when I produced when I get behind the scenes stuff when I added it. Ball in pursuit of a job like this, that that honestly I I knew was attainable. I knew was possible, but you know, but let's be real. I mean, these positions are like Supreme Court justice appointments. You get one and as long as you do the right things. I mean, unless you dye job really hard because there's no built in turnover, right? There's only 30 of them, and that's it. And, uh And generally, you're talking about cities that if you have no connection to them if you're not from there, if you don't have a tide of them and some direct way, it makes it all the more commandingly difficult. And, uh, yeah, It's just been a ah, lot of great circumstances. You know, one of the other questions. I got answers every day. Was there one you know, like a big leap moment that that Ah ha moment And And really the reality is there's like 1000 of them like everyone dominoes into the next one. I think anyone that achieves any form of success, no matter what it is. In your career and your personalized the goals that you have. There is no one moment, right? It's it's doing everything every single day and in the aggregate over time, hopefully that results in achieving your dreams. Well, the article that Paul Docherty wrote me inquire the other day Me, and that was that was pretty thorough. And I get the impress that Doc might be a little impressed by it. And let me tell you something, but not being familiar with the marketplace. Doc doesn't impress easily. Yeah, he was. He was very kind, and he had some really good questions. You know, if that's something that has struck me is that I had a chance to be introduced to a number of folks you know, throughout the landscape of the city, in the on the media and on the port side, even understand it's a very informed town and people are asking, you know, research prepared questions on one, but that I have to contemplate that I think about you know, he was one of the shining examples of guys but things that I was like, Can I do some math real quick? Can I go back and kind of threw my laptop, trying to add some things up, and that was very kind and generous of him, And I think that's what Probably resonate. The most for me, is how many people number one that I didn't realize how many people had come across and known and befriended and work. Had called Cincinnati home or that have a major tied to the area and just how nice even total strangers have been. It's been incredibly warm, incredibly friendly, and I just hope I can live up to that to some degree and provide some distraction and entertainment. Yeah, John To Eddie's point. I think the last compliment Doc gave out was I think the loop in l A after they won the world Syriza 1990. I'm not sure about that. But that may have been the last one. So it's me. So, John, look. Yeah, Every play by play guy has like a style, right? Joe Buck has a style Martin. Marty Brennan, of course, had a style and I know you've kind of home and work your craft. Did you go by? Can you give us give the listeners an indication of how you approach a baseball game? Maybe what Your style isn't calling again. Yeah. I think our primary jobs are to inform everybody and to make it fun, You know, And I think it depends on the game. I think I think you just missed number with any sport. With any announcer When we start all of us are our novice and green and when ready, it's really we don't know what we're doing. We're figuring it out. It's a repetition based thing like anything else in life. And and I think the biggest thing you learn as you add repetitions is came always dictates. But game is the star and The game will tell you if it's a one run thing that the eight you're gonna shut the heck up about your other side stories or ridiculous numbers you have and you're just gonna let the drama carry it, especially on TV. You probably don't even talk that much. You accent moments, but if it's tended nothing in either direction in the third inning. Well, then that's the day for the filler. That's the data..

"Sorry and I beg for Your forgiveness. A little bit of background before we get the guys, thoughts, Thom. Brennaman is fifty six years old. He is the son of Martin Marty Brennan One of the Legendary Baseball announcers for the Cincinnati. Reds. Marty is up there with Jack Carey Carey Vin scully, that class of guys maybe your grandfather grew up listening to them on the radio just a legendary voice tom is also called. The NFL on Fox occasionally moves over to work with Troy Aikman on some of the biggest games in America. Every Sunday when Joe Buck is calling the world series and Fox sports who you mentioned was his employer did have the bowl championship series. which was the National Championship in College Football. Prior to the playoffs, he was the voice of that to lead play by play voice on College football sort of during the era where Tim tebow played there in the two thousand and six, thousand, seven era he was known as a huge proponent of Tibo Keyshawn J. Zubin presented by Progressive Insurance Reese. Davis does the bunch about Tim Tebow who's joining us in about six minutes the host of College Game Day and all of our guest join us on the. Shell Pennzoil performance side including recent Doris Burke talk NBA coming up at eight thirty, A. M. Eastern time. But first, let's talk to key about Tom Renan. You heard the last thing you said even though he's been on our airwaves for decades in some of the biggest events in sports he himself said, it might be the last time you hear my voice. Well, I mean, look at the end of the day whatever he claimed he guests he slipped up whatever the case is your behavior patterns and learn. Years ago it's fifty six years old. In even even if He for some reason. Has Issue with. Gay, men and women transgender whatever the case may be. Keep it to yourself and get educated and learn about it. Learn about what it is learn about other people's feelings. You know I have a daughter who is gay So beloved my child have no problem with it at all. You know in fact when I learned all your girlfriend. Because she was a little worried. She didn't know like I don't. You mind I don't care. For last four years. I've worked with L Z GRANDERSON L Z granderson out in Los Angeles at ESPN seventeen four years of radio openly gay journalist here at ESPN. CNN La ties you got a whole bunch of jobs, but one of the Yes of the best in the game though. Job. But also human being one of the best in we've gone. Doing Prime Month we've we've walked the streets of Los Angeles. When black lives matter and Lbj Q. Combined we walk the streets we have fun in. So don't be afraid we scared of is a different time. This is not nineteen thirty five for crying out loud. You know we get ready to be in twenty, twenty, one man. You know everybody sitting around and you around every day. Is Thinking different than you think in like the stone ages. and. So when I see people are interact with people who have that mentality. Whether is bigotry. Homophobic whatever that's because you learn that along the way somebody taught you act that way in not treat everybody equal. It really does piss me off because it's close to home. You know and it's just that's people are and it's it's a damn shame but that's what it is key. Thank you for providing context for that because it is a learned behavior and we all have friends we travel all across the country. I hear a lot of people from the older generation that sometimes may use terminology like that and like a fun joking type away and I always course correcting them like look man don't say that that's wrong. That's wrong and my thing is that I'm not going to become part of cancel culture I'm not GonNa say that Tom and never needs to work again. There is a fine line that we can find here. But like my mom taught me I can forgive it doesn't mean I need to forget though, but it's not my decision whether to hire him a fire I understand his contract is not my decision I don't have to live with that on my conscience. I'm not worried about that. My my thing is when you deal with situations, you give excuses to. Why your behavior is such instead of really sanding yourself, you know what I need to check myself at the door in. Realize we live in a different time you still in a time warp like a time machine is something not only him but we also had an issue with the announcer, the Hornets broadcaster John Folksy who got caught typing racial epithet on a text message key. That's what you're, right? Yeah the. which is which is ridiculous. Now, every excuse could be well, you close to the I and I really meant to smell nuggets test. All cool. I got a damn iphone. Most of America do or some sort of smart communication predictive text and we know with iphone is called predictive. Go, right I tried to type in the word nuggets multiple times and type the I I said N I G. G, G. Get Unite gave me nuggets again. Give me. That word it didn't that were to give me nuggets. So I guess because we don't have that in your tech saved or anything like that. It's not. It's not there where you've used it multiple times. It's not like you're writing what in you just go w. h. and any Bam that you had to have put that there I understand and I we're on. Them saying about I made no mistake. We're in the same page. I. Look At. These things are difficult to deal with I, appreciate both individuals and their apologies. It doesn't let us forget and I think these are learning opportunities right and one of the things I will continue to preach is that you know every day that we come here to our jobs, you can't fabricate who you are who you portrayed to be on air and. Do on radio that. So you have to be all the time. We no longer live in a world where you can be something on TV and then be something behind closed doors. No stuff gets called out. So you know that's proof reading if that's owning something or trying to force yourself to change I'm not giving excuses for it I'll say I'll say. You're. Raising. Smile. It is because if anybody tried that. Shame on them man don't give me. No I made a mistake proof read I really did meet 'cause you gotta go through the whole thing you got to see it. To see it. I don't know when you're texting. You're going to read your Texas say okay. Let me make sure this is right but I'm not saying like. All right so What just one word will follow consuming. You can help me with this because you always provide context. Did he deleted automatically? Do. We know that we should have some reduces. Producers. We need to find that out because if he deleted automatically, you are entitled to make mistakes mistake was grand and it was horrible and it's a messed up thing I, know we don't have patience for that but you deleted automatically you own a mistake i? Do WanNa find some middle ground here because I'm not saying that's who he is as a person. He may have also made a mistake to and I know predictive taxi ma I don't I don't know knowing J..

"Early returns are not good because of a lack of like a hidden now one might say, it's the cold weather. I remember when I played at deer park high school when it was called in blustery. It was hard to hit the ball. It's difficult. Although I did quite well under the leadership coach Jerry would and Hank us nonetheless, the other I think the other club is also playing in cold temperatures. And when I watched Pittsburgh those guys were kind of excited to play on Sunday. They won easy going away last night Milwaukee. I never thought the reds Ren even in with scores tied three three. I didn't -ticipant register to win. And so tonight's and other big game. These games now are worth a lot more than simply one game. They've got to create with the eight or nine new players a culture of winning. So that it breaks the back of the attitude about losing losing losing. And losing which the core of the team has had for the past four seasons. You get used to losing you. Lose more. The last four years. I don't think the club and a whole bunch of fight in it. And this year's team as I said at my great open a speech, I'm optimistic because the number of new players coming in from winning organizations, especially from the dodgers who've been in the World Series the last two or three seasons I thought. Okay puig. And these other guys are going to come in. And it's going to be better and not now you have one of the players camp getting kicked out of the game and other stuff going on. And I think tonight's I know everyone says the experts say the hell McCoy's the Marty Brennan hands the segment Denison say it's only one game. Don't worry we play hundred well in the beginning here when you play so many teams against the central division. The reds have got to create the culture of winning. So that carries forward and there's nothing wrong with the weather now nothing wrong with the weather tomorrow for the business special. So I wanna of ask I know it was cold like thirty three degrees on Sunday last night was kinda cold and the thing that was around the mid forties or something. But. Tonight's going to be a little bit warmer months. When is when is going to be perfect. It's going be about sixty five degrees going to be like reds opening day. So I like to see twenty-five or thirty thousand reds fans show up in compel them to win before they go to Miami and come back and play some more here. I think these games are more important than you think. No. Secondly, Dan Hill's brought this up about the rule of law. Not there's one set of rules that apply. Equally to every American doesn't always happen that way, you know, what I'm saying isn't a regular event that that.

"One week from today. Baseball kicks off one hundred fiftieth year beginning right after the civil war. Enter the great victory the union over the confederacy and every summer since eighteen sixty nine the reds have played baseball one hundred and fifty years, strong, we've gone through feast and famine depression, economic glory, great victories in Warren, great, defeats we've experienced at all as Americans in the past one hundred and fifty years and read space ball has been there every step along the way. When somebody would ask me a year or two ago, whose whose performance on the air would be most difficult to follow. It would not have been Gary Burbank or Bob Trumpy or Jim Scott. It would not have been dentist Janssen are Jerry Springer. It would not have been normal. Rashid would not have been all the great TV and radio announcers, and broadcasters that we've had in this great market would not have been Bob Braun or Bonnie Lu. It would have been one man. That's Marty Brennaman. How difficult is it to walk in the shoes of the hall of Famer and succeed the man who will help Marty Brennaman complete is forty sixth year of broadcasting is Tommy thrall, Tommy thrall. Welcome to the Bill Cunningham show. Tommy, how are you? I'm doing great Bill. How are you? I'm doing well to introduce you officially the reds baseball fans. Who is Tommy thrall? Boy, that's a that's a tough question. Just a midwest guy originally from Kansas City and a huge baseball fan and certainly delighted to be a part of the reds organization. That's for sure. Seven years, you're in the minor leagues you bounced around various opportunities as every announcer. Does you spent seven years as a blue llahu announcer? And Pensacola, Florida you go from the bluewater who's to baseball's oldest. And I think best franchise what can you give us? Some of the memories of the blue wa who's stick out in Tommy throws mind. Well there were opening day. Because that was it's funny you go from a franchise franchises still in its relative infancy in in the wa who so being a part of opening day. They're the very first year with all the excitement surrounding that. That's one that really stands out. And then just the. It's everybody talks about this game. And it's the people that make this game grade. And they were just so many great people that I had a chance to get to know. And fortunately, a lot of them are in the reds organization. So there's still a lot of people that I get to be around on a regular basis. And that's those the things that stand out to me the most and my time there and Pensacola was just a town. And I certainly loved it while I was there. You know, Tommy, it's one thing to live in Missouri. Which is fine. The show me state. I'm I'm glad to read all the stuff about you last night. I read a bunch of stuff about you. And I'm very happy to report that you're not a cardinal's fan. You Kansas City. Royals fan. Correct. Yeah. Yeah. I grew up, you know, just north of the city they're so they're oils or my team, but grew up listening to Denny Matthews and Fred white e yeah, it was tremendous. Did you have a vision? Many young Americans have no idea. I didn't know what. Hell I was doing was like twenty five or twenty six years old. Did you grow up thinking man, I wanna be I wanna be a major league baseball announces only. Unlike thirty jobs, did you grow up thinking now. Yeah. I I actually did. I I was probably around ten years old. That's what I kind of realized that this is really what I wanna do in life. And then as you get older, and you get a little wiser you realize well, that's a pretty lofty goal. And so I was one of those deals where he just keep fighting for it. There's a lot of great people that support a goal and a dream like this along the way, and certainly without the support that I've had whether it's people mentoring me and helping me out giving me advice on how to improve and get better as a broadcaster, just, you know, family supporting and other people around you that are just constantly telling you that that you're doing the right thing to keep it up. I mean, it takes it takes a lot of people to stick with something like this. And boy, I can't I can't. Even begin to tell you how gratifying it is. To reach this level. I mean, it's outstanding. And. It was a fun journey. And that was something that I had heard a while ago. They said whether you make it or not just just enjoy the journey because your time in the minor leagues. Actually, it's pretty fun. And so many guys I get caught up in. Well, am I ever gonna make it what am I doing? You know, if you just got to step back and enjoy the moment that you're in. I think it makes everything a little more worthwhile. And you have a lot of fun doing it. Tommy throw you made it to the age of thirty five, and I was talking to the man last night. He and I've been buddies for about forty years, and and I asked him what about this addition reds baseball as a fan. I have more hope in two thousand nineteen that I've had any point in the past five or six years. The last five or six years have been difficult to read into the playoffs since two thousand thirteen they've had plus ninety loss seasons for the last four. This would be five if it happens again, he says no way the Edman tells me this is the best. Team the reds have ads since two thousand thirteen can you give long-suffering reds baseball fans? A sense of how good this club is going to be. Yeah. I think you're right. I mean, this is this is a much improved team. I think when you just look at what they've done with the lineup. They built they built some holes. And then you've got up week. There's always going to be exciting. Regardless of what goes on in the outfield. He he is a fun player to watch. Anytime. He played I remember a couple of nights ago on a spring training game. He came to the play games on the line. And you're just excited when a guy like that comes up or there's guys on base. And you're hoping it gets to his turn in the lineup. Just that's the type of excitement that he brings. And I think there's a lot to be said for that. And then the pitching staff is much improved. And that when you look at what has gone on with the reds over the last couple of years especially last year. The lineup was still pretty good. They still were able to produce some rides the big deficiency. There was the starting rotation. Well, regardless of what happens the rotation is drastically improve the season. So I think right there alone. You're looking at a better team of open is still mostly intact. With Hernandez Hughes Eglesias are are back out there. So the bullpen which was really strong last year is still mostly intact. And then it just made the they made the improvements that needed to be made in a rotation. Now, it's just signed for everybody go out and do what they can do. And I think you can anticipate a much improved season from Louis fifty this year as well as he continues, his growth and development wanna talk to the hall of Famer about how you were notified nineteen seventy four to come to the reds. It was two hundred and twenty one applications two hundred and twenty one tapes or Sanitec Wagner and the reds at that point. And he put it out of his mind wasn't going to happen. He was down in the final ten when that's interesting then mardi said, well, I'm down to final three they fly me in. And then I do an interview and I'm thinking, okay. And then I get a call saying that I got the job and this. He said, I know I came out of nowhere. And that's the time. I was in law school at the university of Toledo. The only time. L left Cincinnati going to law school, and I told my buddies in Toledo I said who and his Marty Brennan guy. We've had Al Michaels and Joe nuxhall for God's sakes for three years. And I think Al Michaels went out to the giants. And and my buddy said well this Martin what's his name Brennan. I said Brennan tells his name he's this guy's not going to last. And then the first game he broadcast. It was the one in which Hank Aaron hits number seven fourteen on reds opening day of nineteen seventy four and the rest is history. We had the big red machine we had world championships. We had all star games or the glories the good the bad the ugly everything in between. And so as a as a long suffering reds baseball fan waiting to reawaken, the echoes of a bygone era. I say the brighter days. Lie ahead. Tommy thrall. Do you have a sense, you're starting something? Now, that's gonna last something. Like forty six years. You're about the sandwiches mardi a little bit. Yeah. A little bit. I try not to get caught up in that. I mean, just really this year is going to be pretty special altogether. With obviously being Marty's last year. The team seems to be much better the one hundred fiftieth anniversary, and it's. You know personally my first year in the big leagues. So I just want to enjoy this season and not get wrapped up in and what could be in the future, and certainly nothing's ever guaranteed in this business. So just try to enjoy it for what it is now and make the most of it and that have as much fun as humanly possible, and I tell you what when you work with Marty on a daily basis. There's a lot of fun to be at the key to Marty for the great announces whoever the lineup Joe Bacher, just a lineup all the great ones. And it's not calling balls and strikes. It's not saying strike to is not saying this man on second. It's not saying, you know, what? Fly ball to left because baseball is different than hockey or basketball and football. And that most of the game is dealing with ten minutes of action surrounded by three hours of commentary, and what he does is fill up the time between the pitches in between the between, the changes, the pitchers, etc. That makes the. Listener one listen to the next story. And what have you learned from mardi? You were like September. Call up like a minor leager. What did you learn for mardi about the about the scale about the profession of broadcasting? I think one of the biggest things is that he just has fun every day. And that's the biggest thing I think you can do because you know, you can't you can't learn the story. That's just something that he is a crude over I'm in this business. And now he does have a memory like a steel trap, which you know, I I I can only long for that kind of memory. But you know, he he does he does have great recall the stories like I said, that's just something. I think that you you gather and collect over years of doing this. So he doesn't nice job with that. But he just the main thing that he does. So well is he just has funny makes the broadcast on the listen to and I think that's one of the most important things for young broadcasters is sometimes gets lost. And anytime that I'm Grizzle set by any means. But anytime anybody. Asked me for suggestions. And they're getting started in the business. I say we'll just have fun with it. Because if you have fun it's going to sound like you're having fun, and then the listeners gonna have fun. So, and that's that's certainly something that Marty does so well, and that's something that I've just picked up from him notice that he does real well, and I think that's one of the keys to doing this. And I think that's certainly one of the many keys is longevity. What how how how were you notified mardi was notified down to the three? Then he went to the hotel gotta call the hotel had to go somewhere. How how is Tommy thrown notified that you're the chosen one? I I was actually covering the three a state championship. Alabama state football championship or local Pensacola TV station. I was up in Auburn Alabama. I'm in this box. They just freaked out. I hadn't been there have been redone. So I still wasn't completely aware my roundings by phone rings Cincinnati number and I'd take the phone call, and it was Carrickfergus and Phil Castellini..

And you know, I just finished red Barbara's book, and it talked about his time in Cincinnati. Al Michaels, you mentioned I mean, it's unbelievable.

"Cunningham, the great American. Welcome to this rather rainy Thursday afternoon in the Tri state, but one week from today reds baseball kicks off for its one hundred fiftieth year, beginning right after the civil war and for the great victory of the union over the confederacy and every summer since eighteen sixty nine the reds have played baseball one hundred and fifty years, strong, we've gone through feast and famine depression, economic glory, great victories in Warren, great, defeats we've experienced at all as Americans in the past one hundred and fifty years and read space ball has been there every step along the way. When somebody would ask me a year or two ago, whose whose performance on the air would be most difficult to follow. It would not have been Gary Burbank or Bob Trumpy or Jim Scott. It would not have been dentist Johnson or Jerry Springer. It would not have been normal. Rashid would not have been all the great TV and radio announcers, and broadcasters that we've had in this great market and would not have been Bob Braun or Bonnie Lu. It would have been one man. That's Marty Brennaman. How difficult is it to walk in the shoes of the hall of Famer and succeed the man who will help Marty Brennaman complete his forty sixth year of broadcasting is Tommy thrall, Tommy thrall. Welcome to the Bill Cunningham show. Tommy, how are you? I'm doing great Bill. How are you? I'm doing well to introduce you officially the reds baseball fans. Who is Tommy thrall? Boy, that's a I guess that's a tough question. Just a midwest guy originally from Kansas City and a huge baseball fan and certainly delighted to be part of the reds organization. That's for sure. Seven years in the minor leagues you bounced around various opportunities as every announcer. Does you spent seven years as a blue llahu announcer in Pensacola, Florida, you go from the bluewater? Who's to baseball's oldest? And I think best franchise what can you give us? Some of the memories of the blue who's the stick out in Tommy throws mind. They were you know, I think opening day because that was it's funny. You go from a franchise that still in its relative infancy in in the one who so being a part of opening day. They're the very first year with all the excitement surrounding that. That's one that really stands out. And then just the it's everybody talks about this game. And it's the people that make this game grade. And they were just so many great people that I had a chance to get to know. And fortunately, a lot of them are in the reds organization. So there there's still a lot of people that I guess it'd be around on a regular basis. And that's those are the things that stand out to me the most and by time there, and and Pensacola was just a town and certainly loved it while I was there. You know, Tommy, it's one thing to live in Missouri. Which is fine. The show me state. I'm I'm glad to read all the stuff about you last night. I read a bunch of stuff about you. And I'm very happy to report that you're not a cardinal's fan. You Kansas City. Royals fan. Correct. Yeah. Yeah. I grew up, you know. Just north of the city there. So the oils or my team listening to Denny Matthews and Fred white e yeah, it was tremendous. Did you have a vision? Many young Americans have no idea. I didn't know what all I was doing was like twenty five or twenty six years old. Did you grow up thinking man, I wanna be I wanna be a major league baseball announces Zilly? Unlike thirty jobs, did you grow up. Yeah. I I actually did. I was probably around ten years old. That's what I kind of realized that this is really what I wanna do in life. And then as you get older, and you you you get a little wiser you realize well that's pretty lofty goal. And so I was one of those deals where he just keep fighting for it. There's a lot of great people that that support a goal and a dream like this along the way, and certainly without the support that I've had whether it's people mentoring me and helping me out giving me advice on how to improve and get better as a broadcaster just family supporting and other people around you that are just constantly telling you that that you're doing the right thing to keep it up. I I mean, it takes it takes a lot of people to stick with something like this. And boy, I can't I can't even begin to tell you how gratifying it is. To reach this level. I mean, it's outstanding. And it was a fun journey. And that was something that I had heard a while ago. They said whether you make it or not just just enjoy the journey because your time in the minor leagues actually is pretty fun. And so many guys I think get caught up in. Well, am I ever gonna make it it it what am I doing? You know, if you just gotta step back and enjoy the moment that you're in. I think it makes everything a little more worthwhile. And you have a lot of fun doing it. Tommy throw you made at the age of thirty five, and I was talking to the man last night. He and I have been buddies for about forty years. And and I asked him what about this addition reds baseball as a fan. I have more hope in two thousand nineteen that I've had any point in the past five or six years. The last five or six years have been difficult to reds are not into the playoffs since two thousand thirteen they've had plus ninety law seasons for the last four. This would be five. If it happens again, he says no way the Edmund tells me this is the best team the reds have ads since two thousand thirteen can you give long-suffering reds baseball fans? That sense of how good this clubs going to be. Yeah. I think ED's right? I mean, this is this is a much improved team. But I think when you just look at what they've done with the lineup. They built they built some holes. And then you've got got week is always going to be exciting regardless of what does on the outfield. He is a fun player to watch any time. He comes the plate. I remember a couple of nights ago and a spring training game. He came to play the games on the line. And you're just excited when a guy like that comes up or there's guys on base. And you're hoping it gets his turn in the lineup. Just that's the type of excitement that he brings it. I think there's a lot to be said for that. And then the pitching staff is much improved. And that's when you look at what has gone on with the reds over the last couple of years, especially last year. The lineup is still pretty good. They still were able to produce runs the big deficiency. There was the starting rotation. Well, regardless of what happens to the rotation is drastically improve this season. So I think right there alone. You're looking at a better team of open is still mostly intact. With Hernandez got Hughes Iglesias are back out there. So the bullpen which was really strong last year is still mostly intact. And then it just made the they made the improvements that needed to be made in a rotation. Now, it's just signed for everybody go out and do what they can do. And I think you can anticipate a much improved season for Louis steel this year as well as he continues, his growth and development. You don't want to talk to the hall of Famer about how you were notified in nineteen seventy four to come to the reds. It was two hundred and twenty one applications two hundred and twenty one tapes were sending a dick Wagner and the reds at that point. And he put it out of his mind going to happen. He was down in the final ten when that's interesting then mardi said, well, I'm down to final three they fly me in. And then I do an interview and I'm thinking, okay. And then I get a call saying that I got the job and this. He said I had no I came out of nowhere. And that's the time. I was in law school at the university of Toledo. The only time. L left Cincinnati go to law school, and I told my buddies in Toledo, I said who the hell's his Marty Brennan guy. We've had Al Michaels and Joe nuxhall for God's sakes for three years. And I think L was went out to the giants. And and my buddy said, well, this Martin is what's his name Brennan. I said Brennan hand what what tells his name? He's this guy's not going to last. And then the first game he broadcast. It was the one in which Hank Aaron hits number seven fourteen on reds opening day of nineteen seventy four and the rest is history. We had the big red machine we had world championships. We had all star games or the glories the good the bad the ugly everything in between. And so as a as a long suffering reds baseball fan waiting to reawaken, the echoes of a bygone era. I say the brighter days. Lie ahead. Tommy thrall. Do you have a sense, you're starting something? Now that's going to last something like forty six years. You're about the same age is mardi. You're a little bit. Yeah. A little bit. You know, I I try not to get caught up in that. You know? I mean, just really this year is going to be pretty special altogether. With obviously being Marty's last year. The team seems to be much better the one hundred fiftieth anniversary, and it's you know, personally my first year in the big league. So I just got want to enjoy this season and not get wrapped up in and what could be in the future, and certainly nothing's ever guaranteed in this business. I just try to enjoy it for what it is now and make the most of it have as much fun as humanly possible. And I tell you what when you work with Marty on a daily basis, there's a lot of fun to be had. The key to Marty for the great announces whoever the line of Joe Bacher, just a lineup all the great ones. And it's not calling balls and strikes.

And that most of the game is dealing with ten minutes of action surrounded by three hours of commentary, and what he does is fill up the time between the pitches in between the between, the changes, the pitchers, etc. That makes the listener wanna listen to the next story. And what have you learned for mardi? You were like in September call up like a minor leager. What did you learn from mardi about the about the skill about the profession of broadcasting? I think one of the biggest things is that he just has fun every day. And that's the biggest thing I think he can do because you know, you can't you can't learn the story. I mean, that's just something that he is a crude over time in this business. And now, he does have a memory like it's still trap, which you know. I I I can only long for that kind of memory. But you know, he he does he does have great recall the stories like I said, that's just something. I think that you you gather and collect over years of doing this. So he doesn't nice job with that. But he just the main thing that he does. So well as each just has makes the broadcast on the listen to and I think that's one of the most important things for young broadcasters is sometimes gets lost his anytime out that I'm a grizzled set by any means. But anytime anybody asked me or suggestions, they're getting started in the business. I said we'll just have fun with it.

What how how how were you notified mardi was notified down to the three? Then went to the hotel gotta call hotel head to go somewhere. How how is Tommy? It's Ron notified that you're the chosen one. I I was actually covering the three a state championship Alabama state football championship or the local Pensacola TV station. I was up in Auburn Alabama. I'm in the press box. They just freak on it. I hadn't been there since it have been redone. So I still wasn't completely aware my drownings by phone races. Cincinnati number and I take the phone call, and it was garett and Phil Castellini. And so suddenly, I know this a pretty important phone call and I tried to duck out anywhere. I can call that. I don't know where I'm at. So I can't doors lead to wear. So I just took back into the back of the press box and kind of a dining area of it. And there's a bunch of people milling around kind of looking at me while I try as best I can't hold back by sheer excitement over the news of the lifetime. So it was it was pretty comical. And then I had to turn around and try to focus. Championship football game. I didn't know a single player on either team. You know, I was doing something I was reporting audit. So it's not like, I was broadcasting reporting is not my shrinks by any means in broadcasting, but we got through it turned out to be a great game. And just a tremendous say, you know, we're not used to changing broadcasters. I think Joe nuxhall began in one thousand nine hundred forty four on June the tenth when he came down from Hamilton pitch a game against the Saint Louis cardinals. And he played for the reds. And then he started broadcasting in nineteen sixty six and spent the next thirty nine years in the booth Marty..

"Martin Brennaman was a thirty one years old. The those in charge dick winner and others looked around for someone to take the place of Al Michaels. Can you imagine taking the place of Al Michaels? I can't imagine the person taking the place of Marty Brennaman. I was in law school university of Toledo had no idea. I would ever get an abroad casting, my wife, and I would always judge the time to come back home from Toledo down the hokey men trail, I seventy five based upon when the reds replying. So if the reds are playing at seven five or seven thirty we would leave Lucas county at that time. So we can have a enjoyable three hours in the car listening to Marty and Joe, and then years would go by and I found myself in broadcasting and the one person I wanted to meet above all others was one Marty Brennaman because of what he meant in my life. When I was in school Marty Brennan. And when I look back upon the great mardi calls. One might argue in the list would be Hank Aaron's record tying seven hundred thousand fourteenth home run in nineteen seventy four opening day in Cincinnati in April, and you might recall Marty Brennaman first game was calling Hank Aaron's seven hundred and fourteenth home run. One might talk about Tom Seaver. No hitter. Her Pete Rose's record breaking forty one ninety two or Tom Browning's. Perfect game or Ken Griffey junior five hundred five hundred home run or the call and out of Oakland. When the ball was sent to Todd Benz and go down the right field line in the reds had won the World Series in thousand ninety. I cannot recall one time that the hall of Famer had a big call to make that he somehow blue or he stuttered or didn't grasp the moment. Those things did not happen. He always rose to the moment. And I would ask Marty. As a fellow broadcaster. Did you ever plan that ahead of time because you knew at some point Hank Aaron what is going to step to the plate? You may not known about the perfect game. Because you don't know until the seventh eighth or ninth inning of Mr. perfect Tom Browning September the sixteenth nineteen Eighty-eight. He said, I never prepared a call even knew one I knew was coming like Ken Griffey junior five hundred home run. You don't you know, it's coming, but you didn't prepare a call. Because if you did that he said, you wouldn't capture the moment. And so of all the characters and broadcasting that I've met the top of the list was Marty Brennaman some of the best things I ever heard was Marty and Joe or Marty and Pete Rose or mardi and David Johnson or mardi and Bob Trumpy. Some of the best stuff I heard and Jeff Brantley it is impossible to fall in someone like Joe nuxhall. But in my view, Jeff Brantley has done a fabulous job in following a living legend Joe nuxhall. And I think Jeff Brantley is wonderful. If it's a bad game. Same as unfortunately, we've experienced a lot in the past five years and is enjoyable to listen to Marti and Jeff banner about whatever it is. They banner about whether it be UDF ice cream or Montgomery and ribs are golf and mardi hated golf. He never understood. Why Joe would wanna play so much golf once mardi started playing golf? He couldn't stop playing golf. In fact, the last series moments he spent with Joe nuxhall or on the golf course at the Kenwood country club when he had some charity event that he was part of someone had bid to play golf with Marty. And Joe and Joe wasn't up to it couldn't complete the whole round, but he wrote around in a golf cart. And so the life of Marty Brennaman on the road has become one of taking golf clubs and enjoying that game. He's the background of our lives as far as the commentary. What's going on think about the history of this man, he began during the presidency of Richard Nixon in one thousand nine hundred seventy four the presidency. That's correct of Richard Nixon in nineteen seventy four. And he ends with the presidency of Donald J Trump a forty six year period in our history that will never be equal again. Bob Castellini talked about he's been the reds broadcaster for thirty percent of its existence. But the team beginning in eighteen sixty nine during the presidency of Ulysses s grant the reds have been around since the presidency of Ulysses s grant. And now he concludes with what's going on now through good times and bad the end of the Vietnam war Marty Brennaman was there nineteen Seventy-six. They bicentennial Marty Brennaman was there. The Iranian hostage crisis in nineteen seventy nine thousand nine hundred eighty Marty Brennaman was there during the entire eight years of Ronald Reagan, the gipper Brennaman was there the entire time. Bush forty one the eight years of Bill Clinton, the eight years of Bush forty three the eight years of Barack Hussein Obama the first two or three years by the time. He gets done of the presidency of Donald J Trump during good times and bad during depressions. Recessions during storms hurricanes tornadoes, earthquakes, whatever it was whatever part of the country. We were in. We knew there was something solid during the day or at night when you heard the voice of Marty Brennaman, kind of knew everything was ok think's gonna be relax. We're going to get through this together, mardi seldom spoke about politics. He did speak about current events. I think I know his political persuasions, but I seldom spoke to him about them. Well, we spoke about largely was baseball and events going on in the city. The Boston Red Sox in one thousand nine hundred eighty one. Which is many say nationally a great franchise, maybe the number one or two franchise in the country. I think the reds are, but that's a different story. But when he looked in one thousand nine hundred eighty one after having only been here seven years, he said no to the Boston Red Sox when they offer him a five year contract to nine hundred eighty one plus two or three other major franchises. I don't wanna mention the names because Martin that offered him similar deals of more money, but in a distant city, and when you're raising three kids you want to do them wanna raise those children in an environment. That's good for them. Anderson township was perfect for the three Brennaman kids. And now, he's got five grandchildren. I've met several of them. They're great little kids. There's something to be said about Cincinnati. Whether you're Chris Collins worth or Bob Trumpy, or Marty Brennaman, you could have national jobs and go elsewhere, but every Monday or Tuesday, Chris Collins worth flies. Back in Cincinnati. Bob Trumpy who was the number one broadcaster for NBC news the Olympics and all that kind of stuff National Football League Monday night football when it was preeminent. That was Bob Trumpy Trump. He coulda gone and lived anywhere. Bob Trumpy stayed in Glendale and likewise when you come to Cincinnati, the great majority people never really leave our town. Tom Brennan, Minnesota for FOX broadcaster lives right here. Solomon wilcox. Tom Jackson, the national broadcasters. Once they're exposed to us. They say, you know, what that's a really great place to live. I wanna live in Cincinnati. So I know exactly. But Marty Brennaman went through when he turned down several big time offers, and he turned them down during a time when he was in his ascendancy see when you're thirty eight thirty nine years old. You're not seventy six years old. You're thinking, okay. I'm moving up the ladder. I'm going from Cincinnati to Boston. But not really mardi saw the Red Sox as a downtick from the Cincinnati Reds. And you might recall in nineteen. Nine hundred seventy nine eighty eighty one the reds weren't very good. I think in one of those years the reds lost one hundred games, but they arose again under Pete Rose, and Lou Pinella and marched shot and it wasn't about necessarily the team itself. It was more about the city the county the region if you like college football has anything better than Ohio State, if you like college basketball, so anything better than the Kentucky Wildcats Xavier, and you see if you'd like to symphony the arts is right here in Cincinnati you'd like rivers and creeks. How about the Ohio river like mountains and valleys? What about Kentucky like caves what about Kentucky? But like auto racing. What's wrong with the Indianapolis five hundred if it like horse racing? What's wrong with the Kentucky, Derby everywhere. I look within one hundred miles of Cincinnati, which has reds country the best and the brightest in the country is right here in the tri-state bar. None. In fact, ESPN said the number one college football program of all time was not Notre Dame. Not Oklahoma not Alabama number one college football program. A bowl of all time is Ohio State. They did another study the number one college basketball program of all time. Guess what? University of Kentucky. It wasn't Louisville. Wasn't Duke wasn't North Carolina wasn't UCLA and was university of Kentucky. So the best and the brightest in the country's right here. So for those of us who were born here like myself or mardi who came here at a younger age of thirty one. He knew he located himself in a part of our country. Down is unique and different and all the world. The reds can go up and down the reds can be good or bad. But Marty Brennaman was consistent for forty five years as I think the best broadcaster all baseball. I didn't spend a lotta time. Listen to Vince gully her Harry Carey her Bob euchre, Jack. Buck didn't do it. But for me, it was Marty Brennaman. I'm sure there's better ice cream maybe than graders. Maybe there's better ribs and Montgomery in somewhere in the country. Maybe there's better chilly than skyline and gold star chili. Maybe there is. But I doubt it maybe there's better bakery goods then Buskens somewhere in the country. But there's something unique and better about are part of a part of the world, and that is called the tri-state in Cincinnati, Ohio. Which is exactly why Marty Brennaman did what Marty Brennaman did which was stay right here. So let's do this set up the rest of today's show at in fourteen minutes or so Marty Brennaman, and I will be together. And I have the honour of doing the first interview with him. At a two thirty. There's a news conference and the media's now been called to come. And I'm sure they're going to be there for you live, but between now, and then I like to hear from you. Those who've listened to Marty Brennaman for some all the days of their lives. The average American who lives in the tri-state is thirty years old..

"Continue to keep an eye on that. I'll tell you Jack one thing that was in the news this week that sort of struck me in in sort of was a fit like a blow to my childhood sort of Ono was the announcement. That Marty Brennan. I'm in is retiring know man since one thousand nine hundred seventy four was his first year microphone for the reds. Yeah. He's going to do the twenty nine thousand nine season. And he's going to hang up the headphone. He's done a guess he he was out in LA. You know, when when the reds route, they're playing the dodgers. And he had a toy sat down on a talk with Vince gully who recently retired VIN was like, oh, it's great. Yeah. Do it. Thanks VIN Scully. I. From us. I got to to interview Johnny bench once and and I was telling Johnny I remember being a kid, and and listen to your games and all that stuff. And and he was like you're not old enough to remember when I played, and I'm like, are you kidding? I remember listening to seven hundred wwl w and and listen to Mario and Joe call the games and. Just such an idiot. I started singing like the jingles and was like the reds around the radio. Like, I like that. That was such a just an indelible part for me. Like, I remember listening to those guys games Joe nuxhall for thirty one years. Yeah. They were broadcast partners for thirty one years. And then then Joe retired and passed away a couple of years after he retired. Yeah. So now mardi now he's going away. What I love about Marty Brennaman. Yeah. Is that I would love. I love listening to Marty Brennaman because he would yell at the reds. When the reds were doing something. Right. Yeah. Tell them and he. Bonehead play right? Yeah. You got to man. I mean, those are those are the best things to pitch and that one's going over to the left field wall. Once again, the reds pitchers. Can't do anything right today. It's one thing to have a broadcaster. Who's a Homer in who you know, you got gotta support our team. You can't say you're negative word. But man, you really get it. When you when you listen to a guy call a game or or be a part of the broadcaster whenever who feels just like the fans do who gets just as upset when a guy misses an easy play or can't run out. You know, can't run something out or or whatever when that guy does that too. And and you hear that guy expressed the same emotions that you're feeling as a fan. A you know, you just you're just able to connect with them. Yeah. And it's gonna it's gonna be lost a great play by play guy. You won the Ford Frick award. Yeah. The baseball hall of fame back in two thousand he won that award. So technically, not a member of the the baseball hall of fame. But. In the broadcaster wing of the baseball hall of fame. Yeah. For sure for sure. So so one more one more year left. He's in a coffee twenty nineteen and one story. I saw this morning that was that. I that I really enjoyed. And this is in the in the realm of music, you know, last year was a for for me as a music fan was it was a tough year because we had Paul Simon retiring, we had Neil diamond stepping away saying, you know, he he had the part that he had Parkinson's and and was not to be able to do the performances anymore. But then oh and another one we had was Huey Lewis. Who was who was having the the ear issues and was losing his hearing. It was not going to be able to perform anymore and sing in public and all this kind of stuff. But then the story I saw on the news this morning is the Huey Lewis in the news are about to release their first album in eighteen years. We'll maybe it's as the final, farewell. No. I don't know. But apparently, he was whatever whatever it is. Maybe he can't perform much in public anymore. But he's able he's able to record and still performs and he's deaf in one ear Israel. I didn't realize that for Brian Wilson. Yeah. Yeah. I know he has like the social anxiety stuff or whatever. Whatever. Yeah. But he also he's also deaf. Okay. See I didn't know that. Yeah. I really didn't. Okay. All right. Well, I believe you. Okay. So you indefinite very bad way. What's a good way? Well, there's natural way. Like Stevie Wonder, I think was born. No, no, the Stevie Wonder born deaf. I think Ray Charles lost his hearing, you mean blind or blind. Sorry. Yeah. Remind of Brian Wilson's daddy's the beat them. I didn't know that in those show was gonna take that kind of a turn the dial boost in here going to be squaring, boo. Gallison's year. It's bad..

Seven eastern kickoff, twenty Sunday night only on NBC. All right. Mclovin. What do you have or waiting for Trent Dilfer who will join us coming up? Okay. Can I start totally out of left field and then we'll get to some real ones Bob euchre's on in our three who is the most iconic baseball announcer of your lifetime. And I have a list from Bleacher report that has you at sixteen. Eighteen and decided to say something names ahead of a Marty Brennaman, Jack buck, Phil, Rizzuto, Harry Carey, Harry callous. Ernie Harwell in Scotland and VIN scully's number one on this list, the list is actually Scully one, Harry callous to and then Mel Allen is up there, but is Bob Yuka right in that list of the most iconic voices a baseball? No, I don't think he's an iconic voice because the brewers weren't very good. So you didn't hear his voice. He is a celebrity and his his best play by play, or is most known play-by-play came in the movie major league, but he was in has been a celebrity for a long long time. So I don't think you think of Bob euchre as a baseball announcer, even though he's a great baseball announcer, you think of been scholar, you think baseball announcer Mel Allen baseball now, sir, who's the most iconic of that group has been Scully and has been, or is Harry Carey sneak in because of the office of l. that he's a character. I don't either. He wasn't a great broadcaster. You know, later in his life earlier in his life. He was Jack brickhouse. I mean, there's so many great ones. Marty Brennaman so hall. Of Famer. Phil Rizzuto was a character. Yes. Yeah. Let's to say how how much of this is just based on where you grew up because as soon as you say, baseball announcer, the first person that comes to mind for me is Phil Rizzuto, but I don't know that he would ever make that list, but that's growing up as a child and learning the game. That's who I remember always hearing he's fourteen on this list. So he did make some though. It did. Yeah, yeah, polling. I would go Jek book from the scope of how the reach of the cardinals back in the day on KOMO Molex their cardinal fans all over the central United States, not just in Saint Louis. You can go to Arkansas all over the place and you even as a cub fan, I was respected Jack buck. Will you had Saint Louis? You could pick up Campbell lex wwl w with the reds with Marty Brennan at night, you could pick up a lot of these radio broadcasts. And I think that that that's where you had this expansion where you became a cardinal fan and you could have grown up in Tennessee or Braves, you know, when they had Ted Turner, when he created TBS your..

Jason Mitchell, super real in it, and it's funny everything she's done since launched her. And now she's always like huge and crazy because that's what she hasn't realized, but she played it real cool in the movie and really little dangerous. I actually let us she played that. Let's go back to Eddie Murphy by favorite celebrity of all time. Yeah, but so you with him every day. Is the move to like pretend you're Natta giant fan, but then like a day? Three. Fuck. It's exactly it so many mentions delirious like, no, no, that's not how that bit way. Exactly. And it was the thing is because Craig was there. You could just ask questions like, have you just go so then any? What about this?

And so you go, this is the most talented guy that's ever lived and he was like, twenty one nineteen was would afford. It was twenty one. Yeah, he was nineteen first came out, right. Exactly.
