The SAN FRANCISCO 49ERS have inked TED ROBINSON to a new five-year deal to continue as the defending NFL SUPER BOWL champions' radio play-by-play announcer. ROBINSON has been the NINERS' radio voice since 2009, when he replaced the retiring JOE STARKEY, and will be active on the team's website and television productions as well as with other elements involved with the NINERS' pending move from CANDLESTICK PARK to the new LEVI'S STADIUM in SANTA CLARA.
"We are absolutely elated that our faithful fan base will get to enjoy TED's unique skills at such an exciting time in our franchise's history,” said 49ERS Director of Broadcasting & Corporate Sales BOB SARGENT. “We look forward to continuing the wonderful legacy of our broadcasters."
“I’ve learned through four seasons how significant the position of the voice of the 49ers is to the fan base,” said ROBINSON. “Luckily, we’ve had calls in the last two years that will live in 49ERS history, and I look forward to many more at a time when our franchise is thriving both on and off the field with LEVI'S STADIUM on the horizon.”
The NINERS air on a network headed by CUMULUS Sports KNBR-A and Rock KSAN (107.7 THE BONE)/SAN FRANCISCO.
