Brandon Gaudin, Georgia Tech’s radio voice since 2013, is leaving to undertake a trio of new broadcasting opportunities.
He has been named the new play-by-play voice of Madden NFL for EA Sports, beginning with the game’s “Madden NFL 17” edition that arrives in August of this year.
Gaudin is taking over for Jim Nantz, who had voiced the video game the past four seasons. The other play-by-play commentators prior to Nantz include Pat Summerall, Al Michaels and Gus Johnson. Gaudin will sit alongside Fox Sports NFL analyst Charles Davis, who replaces Phil Simms.
Also starting this fall, Gaudin will join the Big Ten Network as a play-by-play announcer for various football, basketball and baseball broadcasts.
In addition to those duties, Gaudin has been named the lead college football play-by-play announcer for Westwood One Sports and will also call occasional NFL games for the network. He will continue to serve as one of the voices for Westwood One’s coverage of men’s basketball, including conference championship week and the NCAA Tournament.
A search for Gaudin’s replacement is underway, according to a statement from Georgia Tech.
