Oh how quickly good news can change. A cheer was heard from Baseball fans around the globe two weeks ago when Chip Caray was dropped by TBS, but the cheers specifically coming from Atlanta will now be changing to groans. Chip Caray is heading back to Atlanta to call Braves games on FOX Sports South and Sport South. Via the Atlanta Journal Constitution….
Three weeks after parting ways with Turner Sports, Cary’s been hired as Braves play-by-play man on Fox Sports South and SportSouth, a person familiar with the situation said Monday. An announcement was expected by the end of the day.
Caray, 44-year-old scion of a famous broadcasting family, will replace Jon Sciambi, who left after the season to accept a full-time job at ESPN.
Caray will work more than 100 games on Fox Sports South and SportSouth with veteran Braves analyst Joe Simpson — more than twice as many Braves games as Caray worked last year for the Turner-owned Peachtree station.
Sorry Braves fans, but you’re stuck with him. Maybe time back with his old team will help Caray gain an understanding of how to do his job again.
