The Minnesota Twins today announced the club’s new lead television and radio broadcast talent: <strong>Cory Provus</strong> will be the new television play-by-play voice, with <strong>Kris Atteberry</strong> taking over lead radio play-by-play duties on the Treasure Island Baseball Network.

Provus, the team’s lead radio play-by-play broadcaster since 2012, transitions to be the Twins’ television voice. Atteberry, who has been part of the Twins’ radio team since 2007, moves from the studio to the booth. The duo joins a long list of names who have etched their places into Twins history via their catchphrases and iconic calls, including Herb Carneal (1962-2006), Halsey Hall (1961-72), Dick Bremer (1983-85, ’87-2023) and John Gordon (1987-2011).

“Cory and Kris have been integral parts of the soundtrack of spring, summer and fall across Twins Territory for many years and we are thrilled to continue these relationships as they step into their new roles,” said Twins President &amp; CEO Dave St. Peter. “The bonds they forge across our organization translate into a storytelling ability that is uniquely theirs; I am supremely confident that both will continue the Twins’ legacy of broadcast excellence.”

Provus spent the last 12 seasons (2012-23) in the Twins’ radio booth, holding primary play-by-play duties for all spring training, regular season and postseason broadcasts, and occasionally filling in on select TV broadcasts. He is a three-time Minnesota Sportscaster of the Year (2015, 2020 and 2022), as recognized by the National Sports Media Association. Prior to joining the Twins, Provus spent three seasons (2009-11) in Milwaukee, where he did play-by-play with Hall of Famer Bob Uecker on WTMJ-AM and the Brewers Radio Network. He began his MLB broadcast career in 2007 as the Chicago Cubs pre- and post-game show host; with the Cubs, he also handled play-by-play duties, backing up Pat Hughes during games, and anchored the morning and afternoon drive sportscasts as a reporter for WGN-AM in Chicago. The Chicago native graduated from the S.I. Newhouse School of Public Communications at Syracuse University.

Atteberry has been with the Twins for 17 seasons (2007-23), previously hosting the Pregame Lineup Card and Postgame Download on the Twins Radio Network, while providing play-by-play and analysis for select games. He has been working in the Twin Cities market for more than two decades, spending five summers (2002-06) calling games on radio and television for the then-independent St. Paul Saints. Prior to joining the Saints, Atteberry also spent three seasons as the lead broadcaster for the Sioux Falls Canaries in South Dakota. A native of Bozeman, Montana and a graduate of Stanford University, Atteberry earned a National Association of Athletic Directors post-graduate scholarship for his broadcast work with Cardinal athletics.

The Twins will announce additional broadcast details for 2024, including schedule and television broadcast home, along with the club’s full TV, radio and Spanish-language talent lineup, later this offseason.
