Reds and FOX Sports Ohio Announce Broadcast Teams for 2021

The Cincinnati Reds and FOX Sports Ohio announce the broadcast teams for the 2021 season.

In the FOX Sports Ohio booth, new play-by-play announcer John Sadak will be joined by several former Reds players serving as color analysts, including the addition of Hall of Famer Barry Larkin, who will rotate with the returning Chris Welsh and Jeff Brantley.

Jim Day rounds out the broadcast team, serving as sideline reporter.

Sadak is in his first season as the play-by-play broadcaster for the Reds and Welsh is in his 29th season as a TV analyst. Day is returning for his 20th season on FOX Sports Ohio.

Larkin has previously worked as a broadcaster at ESPN and MLB Network. He joined ESPN in 2011 as an analyst on Baseball Tonight, the Sunday Night Baseball pregame show, and the network’s coverage of Spring Training and the College World Series. At MLB Network, Larkin was a studio analyst on MLB Tonight and Hot Stove when the network launched in 2009.

FOX Sports Ohio’s Reds Live pregame and postgame show will be hosted by Brian Giesenschlag and Sam LeCure, with Welsh serving on the desk for select games and Charlie Walter filling in for Giesenschlag throughout the season.
