TUSCALOOSA, Ala. – Legendary broadcaster Eli Gold, the voice of Alabama Football for 36 years, is departing from his role as play-by-play announcer for the Crimson Tide and host of "Hey, Coach" on the Crimson Tide Sports Network. Chris Stewart, who has been with the network in a variety of positions since 1998, will assume both roles beginning with the Golden Flake A-Day Spring Football Game.
"Eli has been an invaluable member of our broadcast team," said Jim Carabin, Vice President and General Manager of the Crimson Tide Sports Network. "We are grateful for his years of service and wish him all the best in this next chapter. CTSN is fortunate to have someone as part of our existing broadcast team in Chris to step up and seamlessly transition into this role."
Throughout his career with the Crimson Tide, Gold called the action for seven national championship games, 11 SEC championships and 35 bowl games. He has been recognized nationally as recipient of the 2019 NFF Chris Schenkel Award by The National Football Foundation (NFF) and College Football Hall of Fame, which is presented annually to individuals who have had long, distinguished careers broadcasting college football with direct ties to a specific university. Additionally, Gold is a member of the Alabama Sports Hall of Fame and The University of Alabama College of Communications and Information Sciences Hall of Fame, won multiple Alabama Sportscaster of the Year awards and has a scholarship named in his honor, benefiting University of Alabama students.
