Thom Brennaman tells me that he’s cutting back on his Saturday Fox TV commitments next year to become the Reds primary TV announcer. Brennaman will replace George Grande, who retired in October after 17 seasonswith the Reds. Thom will do about 100 Reds games for Fox Sports Ohio, as Grande did, plus a handful of radio games with his father, Marty.

“I’ll do some radio – five or 10 games – just to be able to do some with my dad,” says Brennaman

Wouldn’t surprise me if Jim Kelch takes Thom’s open slot.

Maybe Thom not working with his dad so much will be a good thing?
