Chip Caray

Harry Christopher "Chip" Caray III (born 1965) is a television broadcaster for the Atlanta Braves of the National League, but is best known as an announcer for Chicago Cubs games from 1998 to 2004. He is the son of Skip Caray and the grandson of Harry Caray.

Well before joining the Cubs, Chip "paid his dues", working with local television stations in Panama City, Florida, and Greensboro, North Carolina. He was the play-by-play broadcaster for the Orlando Magic of the NBA from 1989 to 1996. He worked on baseball games for the Seattle Mariners of the American League from 1993 to 1995. He was also the studio anchor for the very first edition of Major League Baseball on Fox Broadcasting Company in 1996.

In terms of broadcasting style, Chip resembles neither his father nor his grandfather. Chip's style is chatty, focused, yet effusive. He has been criticized for interjecting his game analysis while delivering play-by-play, instead of letting his color analyst do the job.

In September of 2004, after a difficult season embroiled in conflict with several Cubs players and staff, Chip Caray announced that he would be leaving the Chicago Cubs organization to announce Braves games with his father Skip. In Chicago, he was replaced by Len Kasper.
