It’s impossible to think about the Cincinnati Reds without hearing Marty Brennaman’s voice booming in your ears. The longtime sportscaster has lent his voice to radio broadcasts of Reds games since 1974 and he continues broadcasting to this day. Born in Portsmouth, Virginia, Brennaman attended the University of North Carolina and worked at small radio stations in North Carolina and Virginia. By 1970, he was announcing games for the Virginia Squires of the old ABA and the Norfolk Tides, a minor league affiliate of the New York Mets. He hit it big from a pool of more than 200 applicants to land the gig opposite former pitcher Joe Nuxhall as the Reds’ play-by-play announcer. In only his second game, he coined his now legendary catchphrase, “And this one belongs to the Reds!” and went on to announce historic accomplishments by greats like Hank Aaron, Pete Rose and Ken Griffey Jr.
