The Winnipeg Goldeyes are searching for a new radio voice, after longtime broadcaster Paul Edmonds stepped down today.
Edmonds served as the voice of the Fish for 19 seasons, most recently on TSN 1290, offering play-by-play, co-hosting a regular Goldeyes show with manager Rick Forney, and keeping tabs on the team throughout the offseason.
But TSN 1290 recently acquired the rights to Toronto Blue Jays games, and the Goldeyes will move their broadcasts to 100.7 this year.
Edmonds resigned as the voice of the Fish to sign on with TSN 1290, where he has recently helped broadcast hockey.
Edmonds will join the TSN 1290 morning show with Troy Westwood and Matt Leibl, filling the hole left after the station cut Jay Richardson from the show earlier this month.
"He is without a doubt one of the best play-by-play announcers in the game of baseball, not just at the independent level, but anywhere in baseball," GM Andrew Collier said in a statement. "The American Association will be without one of the great ambassadors of the game. On behalf of the entire Goldeyes organization, I’d like to wish him all the best in his new venture."
