Crull Departs Bally Sports South After Four Years

A familiar face will be missing from this year’s Braves television team.

Kelly Crull, who sideline reported for Bally Sports South for four years, left the network. Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported Thursday that Crull’s contract expired and was not renewed by Bally Sports South.

The popular Crull joined the network in 2020 after another well-liked Braves reporter Kelsey Wingert‘s contract was similarly allowed to lapse. Now named Wingert-Linch, she still lives in Atlanta but continues to report for the Colorado Rockies on AT&T SportsNet Rocky Mountain.

This year, Brandon Gaudin (play-by-play), C.J. Nitkowski (analysis), Jeff Francoeur (analysis), Tom Glavine (analysis), and Ashley Shahahmadi (reporting) will be returning to their duties. New to the Braves broadcasting team this year is Hanna Yates, who will be alternating reporting duties with Shahahmadi, and Wiley Ballard, who was an announcer for Georgia Tech Baseball games.

Last season’s Braves reporter Lauren Jabara left Bally Sports late last year to join Warner Brothers Discovery’s sports networks, NBA TV and TNT.
