REPORT: LANE GRINDLE EXPECTED TO JOIN BREWERS RADIO

From information I have received from sources in Lincoln.

Lane Grindle is expected to join the Milwaukee Brewers radio broadcast team in the coming days. He would take over the number three position as a fill-in announcer on road trips and other selected games Bob Uecker takes off. Grindle will also have a social media presence and appear on other new media outlets.

The Brewers opening occurred last month when Joe Block left to become the Pittsburgh Pirates lead announcer and promoted Jeff Levering to the number two position alongside Uecker. Others who have served on Brewers radio over the years include Pat Hughes (Cubs radio announcer since 1996), Jim Powell (Atlanta Braves lead radio announcer) and Cory Provus (Minnesota Twins lead radio).

Grindle has served with University of Nebraska athletics for the past decade. He appears as a sideline reporter on football games along with other Huskers programming. He works alongside football play-by-play man Greg Sharpe on baseball broadcasts and also worked as PA voice at Memorial Stadium for the 2015 season. He was pressed into duty after the previous PA announcer was released over a legal issue and his successor removed after social media comments criticizing the university’s firing of football coach Bo Pelini came to light.
Another previous PA voice at Nebraska, Rick Allen, became lead play-by-play for NASCAR on NBC in 2015.

If the report proves accurate, Grindle’s broadcasts talents will be missed in Nebraska but welcomed on the Brewers Radio Network.
