The MINNESOTA TWINS have hired MILWAUKEE BREWERS play-by-play announcer CORY PROVUS as their new radio voice, filling the seat vacated by the retiring JOHN GORDON. PROVUS, who had been the BREWERS' secondary play-by-play voice behind BOB UECKER for three seasons and called CHICAGO CUBS and UNIVERSITY OF ALABAMA-BIRMINGHAM football, men's basketball, and baseball before that, will work alongside DAN GLADDEN on flagship HUBBARD Sports KSTP-A (1500 ESPN)/ST. PAUL-MINNEAPOLIS and the TWINS radio network.
"The MINNESOTA TWINS are thrilled to have this opportunity to introduce one of baseball's rising broadcast stars to fans across TWINS Territory," said TWINS president DAVE ST. PETER. "CORY PROVUS' broadcast style, baseball acumen and sense of humor will be a strong complement to the outstanding work of DANNY GLADDEN ... CORY, DAN and company are certain to carry forward the tremendous legacy of TWINS radio established by the likes of HALSEY HALL, HERB CARNEAL and JOHN GORDON."
