Francoeur also is scheduled to work the NL Championship Series on TBS later this month. He’ll be joined on the NLCS telecasts by Anderson, Darling and Shehadi.
In addition to his role on Bally Sports’ Braves telecasts, Francoeur worked some non-Braves national games on TBS during the regular season. He first called postseason games on TBS in 2019.
A former outfielder with the Braves and seven other MLB teams, Francoeur completed a 12-year major-league playing career in 2016. He served as an analyst on nine Braves telecasts in 2017 and 25 in 2018 before becoming the lead analyst, working about 100 games, in 2019.
TBS’ coverage of the NLDS will begin with a pregame studio show at 4 p.m. Friday. The show will be hosted by Ernie Johnson, who’ll be joined on the set by Pedro Martinez, Jimmy Rollins and Curtis Granderson. The same cast will return for postgame analysis on TBS.
During the NLCS, which starts Oct. 16, Bob Costas will host on-site pregame and postgame studio coverage on TBS, joining Martinez, Rollins and Granderson.
Bally Sports South/Southeast won’t televise games during the postseason, but does plan to broadcast its own postgame show at the conclusion of each Braves game.
The show, “Braves Live Postseason Edition,” will air from a set in The Battery Atlanta, adjacent to Truist Park, immediately following every home and road Braves postseason game. Hosted by Chip Caray, who’ll be joined by Paul Byrd, Kelly Crull, Nick Green, Brian Jordan and Peter Moylan, the show will air on Bally Sports South after NLDS Games 1, 2, 3 and (if necessary) 4 and on Bally Sports Southeast after Game 5 (if necessary).
