According to John Fay and the Enquirer:

(Jeff) Brantley, 43, is expected to join Marty Brennaman and Thom Brennaman as part of the Reds’ primary radio team, according to two sources.

An announcement could come shortly after the World Series ends. Brantley, a former Reds reliever, is working the World Series for ESPN. He could not be reached for comment.


The Reds hired Marty’s son, Thom, on Oct. 4. Thom’s duties will be split between radio and TV. He’ll do 45 games on each. Marty’s longtime partner, Joe Nuxhall, will do another six to 12 games.

That will leave the bulk of the radio work to Marty and Brantley.

I don’t watch a lot of ESPN, so I’m not familiar with Brantley’s work, but I do like the idea of having a player as part of the radio team.
