Greg Brown is in his 20th season as a radio and television play-by-play announcer with the Pirates. Only three other broadcasters in club history have had more time behind the microphone than Brown.
Prior to joining Pittsburgh’s broadcast team in 1994, Brown spent five seasons (1989-1993) doing play-by-play and color commentary for the Buffalo Bisons of the American Association (now International League) as well as hosting a sportstalk show on WGR Radio. He also worked as a color analyst and a pre- and post-game show host for the Buffalo Bills of the National Football League for five seasons (1989-93).
In addition to various off-season appearances in the community and his work on the annual Pirates caravan and PirateFest events, Greg spearheaded the “Gloves for Kids” program, which raised money for much-needed equipment and gloves for youth baseball and softball organizations in underserved areas around the Pittsburgh area.
Brown is a native of Washington, D.C. He currently resides in Leet Township with his wife Kim and son Ryan.
