What's Brewin: Provus tabbed as Uecker's radio sidekick

After lots of waiting, Bob Uecker finally has a compadre.

Cory Provus was introduced last Monday as the second member of the Milwaukee Brewers radio team, making his initial appearance on flagship station WTMJ-AM. He will broadcast his first Brewers game Feb. 25, the exhibition opener against Oakland.

Provus, who comes over from the Chicago Cubs radio team, replaces Jim Powell, who left the Brewers after 13 seasons to take a job with the Atlanta Braves.

With the Cubs, Provus handled pre- and postgame shows on WGN Radio and also served as play-by-play man in the fifth inning when Pat Hughes would take a break.

Before coming to WGN Radio, Provus worked radio play-by-play on broadcasts of Alabama-Birmingham football, basketball and baseball games.
