CINCINNATI - Marty Brennaman has been the voice of the Cincinnati Reds for 40 years this season.
It started with history in the first inning of his first Reds game: Hank Aaron tied Babe Ruth's all-time career home run record.
Marty says reflecting on 40 years, he never thought he'd be in the Queen City that long.
"I was fortunate to land in Cincinnati 40 years ago and with all the opportunities I've had, every time I had to pull the trigger I couldn't say yes," Marty said.
The offers did come, but Marty said he liked it here, and a legendary duo would emerge with Joe Nuxhall.
In Cincinnati, Marty and Joe became as familiar as Procter & Gamble.
Of course it helped that Marty's first few seasons were incredible, never-to-be-repeated seasons thanks to the Big Red Machine.
And even though it was followed by not-so-good seasons, the voices endured through hard times, ups and downs and an age of high-tech this and high-tech that.
Radio remains one of the best way to catch a Reds game, with Marty on the other end.
Marty says he has no regrets about staying, and he's developed into a household name and a hall of famer as a result.
