Last season the Braves went through a change in their play by play commentator for the first time in over a decade. Hopefully, the changes set for the 2024 season can walk the same path Brandon Gaudin last season.

Earlier this offseason it was announced Jeff Francoeur would be taking a reduced schedule in order to spend more time with his family. Former big league pitcher C.J. Nitkowski will take on the brunt of the color commentary duties alongside the aforementioned Brandon Gaudin.

Bally is set to broadcast 151 of the possible 162 regular season games, so we will be getting a heavy dosage of all these names in 2024. Recently, we learned about a trio of new additions that will make the on-field reporting much different from seasons past.

Recently retired Collin McHugh among new broadcast additions

One of the most notable new additions is that of the recently retired Collin McHugh. Just last season, he pitched over 58 innings for the Braves, so he will certainly bring an insight on the feelings in the clubhouse considering he's not long removed from it. McHugh was often regarded as one of the brightest pitchers in the league, so I'm sure we are all eager to hear some of his insights to what pitchers are trying to do on the mound.

Also notable is the absence of regular sideline reporter, Kelly Crull. It seems the Braves will instead rotate through Hanna Yates, Wiley Ballard, and Ashley ShahAhmadi as their sideline reporters for 2024. It has not yet been stated why Crull will not be apart of the Braves broadcasts for the upcoming season.

Trevor Scales will remain the host for the majority of "Braves Live" while the beloved Peter Moylan and Nick Green will serve as analysts once again in 2024. Bally's season-long coverage will start with an hour long edition of "Braves Live" at 2 p.m. ET on Thursday, March 28th when the Braves take on their rivals the Philadelphia Phillies on Opening Day.
