Brandon Gaudin is the Play-by-Play Voice of Madden NFL for EA Sports, beginning with the video game’s “Madden 17” rendition released last August.
On television, he broadcasts college basketball, football and baseball for Fox Sports 1 and the Big Ten Network.
On radio, he is the lead national college football announcer for Westwood One Sports. He also broadcasts select NFL games and the Men’s NCAA Tournament for the network.
Previously, Gaudin spent three seasons as the Play-by-Play Voice of the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets, broadcasting the school’s football and basketball contests.
While in Atlanta, he also broadcasted various NCAA Championships for Turner Sports.
Prior to Tech, he was the Play-by-Play Voice of Butler basketball for three seasons and was on the call for the Bulldog’s 2011 trip to the Final Four.
Gaudin’s Play-by-Play calls have been featured on SportsCenter on 11 separate occasions, six times accompanying the #1 Play on SC Top 10.
His work has also been highlighted and praised by The New York Times, USA Today, The Dan Patrick Show, The Herd with Colin Cowherd, The Jim Rome Show, and SI.com.
Gaudin’s first national exposure came as a junior in college back in 2005 when he was selected from thousands of national participants as the CBS ‘You Call the Action’ broadcasting winner. His work was spotlighted on CBS by Greg Gumbel at halftime of the Men’s NCAA Basketball Championship.
A double major and double minor at Butler University, he was named “Most Outstanding Communications Student” and one of the “Top 10 Male students” in his graduating class in 2006.
