Dan Baker, the Eagles' public address announcer of 29 years, has been let go by the team.
"Dan is the ultimate professional and even though he was disappointed with the direction we are heading, he was accepting of our decision to make the change," team president Don Smolenski said in a press release. "We are very appreciative of his dedication and service. He never missed a single game."
That press release stated that the Eagles "decided to make a change in the role and told Baker about the new direction last week." It also stated that "as the game day experience continues to evolve with expanded audio and visual enhancements, the game-telling experience is no longer the responsibility of a single person."
As such, the Eagles could end up with more than one announcer in the stadium.
