Legendary Alabama play-by-play announcer Eli Gold announced on Thursday his plans to return to the Crimson Tide broadcasting team for the first football game of the season on September 2.
Chris Stewart, the Voice of Alabama football for at least the 2022 season opener, wants to make one thing clear. “This is filling in for him, this is not replacing him,” Stewart said of longtime Voice of Alabama football Eli Gold. “While I’m sick that there is a need for a fill in, I’m extremely honored that they’ve chosen me to do it.”
Crimson Tide Sports Marketing vice president and general manager Jim Carabin announced on Wednesday that Gold, the longtime Voice of Alabama football, will be out for the beginning of the season because of health issues and Chris Stewart will take over Gold’s role.
