Brandon Gaudin, voice of Madden, joins Braves' TV booth

February 16th, 2023

NORTH PORT, Fla. -- Those familiar with the Madden NFL video game will recognize the voice of the newest member of the Braves’ television booth.  

Bally Sports South announced Brandon Gaudin as their new play-by-play voice for Braves telecasts. Gaudin replaces Chip Caray, who is now the Cardinals’ TV play-by-play announcer.

Gaudin, 39, passionately followed the Braves while growing up in Evansville, Ind., and he became an Atlanta resident while he served as the play-by-play man for Georgia Tech football and men’s basketball from 2013-16. He has spent the past seven years calling games for FOX Sports and The Big Ten Network.  

Now, Gaudin will team with analyst Jeff Francoeur to serve as the Braves’ primary television announcers.  

“Today is the realization of a childhood dream,” Gaudin said. “I get to be behind the mic for the team I grew up idolizing. And the team who fostered my love for both sports and broadcasting. I’m grateful to both the Braves and Bally Sports for this incredible opportunity. I cannot wait to work alongside this team and talented broadcast crew.” 

ESPN’s Tom Hart and Eric Collins, who calls Charlotte Hornets games for Bally Sports, were among the others interviewed for the job.   

Gaudin has served as the voice of the widely popular Madden NFL video game since 2017.
