Brotman Has Replaced By Steve Ray For Inaugural Parade

President-elect Donald Trump is breaking from 11 presidents’ worth of tradition and benching Charles Brotman.

Brotman Has Replaced By Steve Ray Inaugural Parade

The 89 year old Brotman once the voice of the Washington Senators baseball team has announced every inauguration parade since Dwight D. Eisenhower in 1957. He told “he was “heartbroken” and “destroyed” by the decision at first. “I’ve been doing this for 60 years.”

In his place, the Trump team has tapped Steve Ray, a 58-year-old Washington-based freelance announcer who has worked with the MLB’s Washington Nationals and for local radio stations. “All of us think of Charlie as as much of the Washington landscape as any building,” Ray told “I’m on top of the world. From my point of view, I am not filling his shoes, I’m not taking his place, I just happen to be the guy who’s next.”

Trump transition spokesman Boris Epshteyn said Brotman will be honored as “announcer chairman emeritus. “Since 1957, millions of Americans and countless entertainers have come to recognize Charlie Brotman as the voice of the inaugural parade,” he said in a statement. “The Presidential Inaugural Committee will be proud to honor Charlie as Announcer Chairman Emeritus on January 20. We are thrilled for Steve Ray to be introducing a new generation of Americans to the grand traditions of the inaugural parade.” Brotman told  he wished Ray well. “As opposed to boy, I hope he fouls up so they say, ‘We want Charlie back.’ No. I don’t want that at all,” he said.
