Brewers mum on Provus report
A Brewers spokesperson could not confirm this morning that the Twins had hired away radio broadcaster Cory Provus, saying only that the Brewers understood the Twins would make an announcement today. Provus, 33, had spent the past three seasons as Bob Uecker’s partner in the broadcast booth.
This would be a promotion for Provus because he would replace longtime Twins radio voice John Gordon, who retired. The Minneapolis Star-Tribune, which reported the hire, said Provus would be introduced on the Twins’ flagship station at 2 p.m. CT.
The Brewers will have to again open a search for a new partner for Uecker, just like they did three years ago after Jim Powell left for a higher-profile job with the Braves. More to come later today…
