D-backs dedicate radio broadcast booth to Greg "The Gub’nuh" Schulte to honor 26-year career

September 29th, 2023

As Arizona’s “Gub’nuh,” Greg Schulte, prepared to step into the Chase Field radio booth for his final regular-season homestand this afternoon, he was surprised by a seemingly impromptu gathering of media and front office staff upon his arrival. D-backs President, CEO & General Partner Derrick Hall greeted Schulte, his wife Nancy, son Scott and daughter Stephanie, and other family members who’d gathered to honor a D-backs legend.

As Schulte walked down the familiar Chase Field hallway, he was surprised with photos celebrating his career lining the walls, and that the radio broadcast booth he’d spent so much time in over the last 26 seasons, now bears his name. The Arizona Diamondbacks dedicated and renamed the booth the “Greg Schulte Radio Booth.”

“We could not think of a better way to celebrate a career like Greg’s and the impact he has had on the Arizona Diamondbacks organization,” said Hall. “Greg’s voice is synonymous with D-backs baseball and generations of D-backs fans have experienced the game through listening to his calls on the radio. Now, his legacy will live on right here at Chase Field as the next generation of broadcasters make calls from the Greg Schulte Radio Booth.”

In addition to the renaming of the radio booth, Schulte was recognized during a special two-hour broadcast on Wednesday evening on 98.7 Arizona Sports. He will be recognized during tonight’s pregame ceremony and will throw out the ceremonial first pitch.

Over the last 26 years, Schulte has called nearly 4,000 D-backs’ regular-season and postseason games. He has been part of the Phoenix broadcast scene since 1979.
