Cory Provus Named Twins New TV Play-by-Play
Dick Bremer has been a staple in Minnesota baseball households for most of three decades so it was somewhat shocking when we learned early this MLB offseason that Bremer was out as Twins TV play-by-play starting in 2024.
Minnesota Twins hire Cory Provus as new TV play-by-play voice
But once the shock wore off, Dick’s replacement seemed as obvious as what was for dinner at the beef lady’s house, back in the 80’s. The Twins needed to hire Cory Provus, who has done radio play-by-play for the club since 2011, when John Gordon retired.
Carlos Correa had his biggest game as a Twin. Pablo Lopez pitched like an ace, and we have a series. Plus, I had a hunch that Correa would make the game ending play, so I hit record. @TwinsRadio #WeBelieveinTC pic.twitter.com/gKAdjpbXno— Cory Provus (@CoryProvus) October 9, 2023
And this time, decision makers didn’t overthink or hire for any reason other than finding the best voice for the job. On Friday morning, the Star Tribune’s Phil Miller got the exclusive scoop that Provus has been chosen as the new TV voice of the Minnesota Twins.
Cory Provus, who has called Twins games on radio since 2012, will inherit Bremer’s spot in the TV booth next season, multiple sources have confirmed. And the Twins will stay in-house to replace Provus on radio as well, by promoting studio host and fill-in play-by-play voice Kris Atteberry to the everyday job.Phil Miller – Star Tribune
Kris Atteberry takes over radio play-by-play
Longtime radio voice, Kris Atteberry will take over play-by-play calling duties on Twins radio calls. Atteberry has been a part of Twins radio broadcasts since 2007, working pre and post-games and filling in when needed. Another good decision.
Provus isn’t hamstrung to baseball broadcasting. He is one of Big Ten Network’s premier play-by-play voices for both football and basketball. He’s one of the best young voices in the business and the Twins are very lucky to have him around.
Had they not promoted Provus, I can’t imagine he would have stuck around tag-teaming radio calls with Dan Gladden for much longer.
