Michael Grady has been named as the Minnesota Timberwolves’ new television play-by-play announcer by Bally Sports North. Grady has worked as a courtside reporter for the Brooklyn Nets for the past six years. He takes over for Dave Benz, who was let go in May, much to the chagrin of fans, after ten years in the role. Grady will now call Timberwolves games on Bally Sports North alongside longtime Wolves color analyst Jim Petersen, as announced on Thursday. @Grady, welcome to the family. I’m looking forward to working with you as we embark on this exciting chapter in @Timberwolves history. — Jim Pete Hoops (@JimPeteHoops) 18 August 2022 “Michael’s extensive knowledge of the game, combined with his genuine on-air style, makes him the ideal fit for this role,” Timberwolves and Lynx CEO Ethan Casson said in a statement. “As Michael returns to his Midwest roots, we couldn’t be more excited to have his voice on the call for future Timberwolves games.” The 39-year-old is an Emmy Award-winning reporter, host, and producer, as well as the 2016 Indiana Sportscaster of the Year. He began his career in radio and television in his home state of Indiana in 2003, and he also worked as the Indiana Pacers’ public address announcer from 2010 to 2017 before joining the YES Network in New York to cover the Nets, host pre- and post-game shows for the Yankees, and run play-by-play for the Liberty. “Today is an exciting day for myself and my family because being an NBA play-by-play announcer has been a lifelong dream of mine,” Grady said. “I can’t wait to start calling games for this exciting franchise with Jim Petersen and the rest of the Bally Sports North crew.” I also look forward to interacting with our incredible Timberwolves fans and community partners to continue telling the stories of this great basketball state.” In a statement, Bally Sports North Executive Producer Tony Tortorici said, “Michael’s unique background and basketball acumen will serve him well in his new role.” “Fans will appreciate his smooth delivery during this exciting new era of Timberwolves basketball, and he will be an excellent complement to longtime Timberwolves analyst Jim Petersen.” The news comes a day after the NBA released its schedule, which shows the Timberwolves opening the season at home against the Oklahoma City Thunder on Oct. 19.
