Thomas “Thom” Brennaman – born 12th September 1963 – is an American sportscaster and the son of current Cincinnati Reds radio sportscaster Marty Brennaman.

After graduating from Ohio University in 1986, Brennaman worked as a sports reporter/anchor for WLWT-TV, the NBC affiliate in Cincinnati. During this same period, he worked as the television play-by-play announcer for the Cincinnati Reds alongside Major League Baseball Hall of Famer Johnny Bench.

In the early 1990s he did Chicago Cubs broadcasts, sometimes with Hall of Fame broadcaster, Harry Caray.

In 1994 he was hired by Fox Sports to call the network’s National Football League and Major League Baseball telecasts. He served as the first television voice for the Arizona Diamondbacks, and left after the 2006 season to join his father Marty in Cincinnati.

In 2006, Brennaman was named as Fox’s lead play-by-play announcer for the Bowl Championship Series. In addition to calling the BCS National Championship Game, Brennaman called the 2007 Fiesta Bowl. Brennaman also called the 2008 Sugar Bowl and the 2009 Orange Bowl.

Additionally, the Big Ten Network named Brennaman as their lead play-by-play announcer for college football games for two seasons beginning in September 2007.

He would return to calling NFL games for Fox in 2009, working primarily with Brian Billick but also filling in as lead announcer while Joe Buck did the MLB playoffs.

Tom wasn’t part of Fox’s NFL broadcast team for the 2020 season after using an anti-gay slur while on air during the Cincinnati Reds doubleheader against the Kansas City Royals (MLB).
