The flagship stations are WCNN and WYAY in Atlanta, Georgia. The main announcers are Jim Powell and Don Sutton, who alternate between play-by-play and color commentary on each broadcast.[1] Ben Ingram is the pregame/postgame host and occasionally fills in on play-by-play, while Kevin McAlpin serves as a dugout reporter. Former known long-time announcers include Pete van Wieren, Ernie Johnson, Sr. and Skip Caray, the latter two of whom are now deceased. The engineer and game producer for Braves Network broadcasts is Brian "Grandma" Giffin.[1] Network Producers and Operators include Jonathan Chadwick, Chris Culwell, Sean Nerny, Kevin D'Amico, Brian Hoyt, Isiah Stewart and Eric Quintana. Due to the large geographic span of the Braves' territory, their radio network has the most affiliates of any team in Major League Baseball.[2] The nearest teams to the north of Atlanta are the Cincinnati Reds, Washington Nationals and the Baltimore Orioles. The nearest teams to the west are the St. Louis Cardinals, Houston Astros and Texas Rangers, while the nearest teams to the south are the Tampa Bay Rays and Miami Marlins.
