Alabama broadcasting legend Eli Gold will be the “official voice” of the Birmingham Squadron, the NBA G League team for the New Orleans Pelicans.

Gold is best known as the play-by-play announcer for the University of Alabama Crimson Tide football team and is a member of the Alabama Sports Hall of Fame. Gold will be the primary play-by-play announcer for all home and away games of the Squadron’s inaugural season, beginning in November.

“Eli is one of the most recognizable voices in all of sports and has been such an important part of the sports landscape in the state of Alabama for decades,” said David Lane, general manager of Business Operations for the Squadron. “It was a no-brainer to have him lead the Birmingham Squadron broadcast. We’re honored to be able to bring him on as a part of the Squadron.”
