VIA TAMPA BAY RAYS COMMUNICATIONS -
ST. PETERSBURG, Fla.— The Tampa Bay Rays have announced the hiring of Chris Adams-Wall to be the host of the pre- and postgame show on the Rays Radio Network. Adams-Wall joins the Rays after more than seven years as the play-by-play broadcaster for their Double-A affiliate, the Montgomery Biscuits.
“With his talents and knowledge of the Rays organization, Chris will make for a seamless transition to our broadcast team,” said Rays Radio Network Broadcaster Andy Freed. “Fans will easily connect with his friendly demeanor, his love of baseball and his obvious passion for all things Rays. We welcome him with open arms and look forward to him getting started.”
In addition to his work with the Montgomery Biscuits, Adams-Wall previously served as a sports anchor and reporter for the Alabama News Network, a play-by-play broadcaster for the Northeast Sports Network and Alabama State football, a writer for ESPN and a production assistant for FOX Sports’ NFL and college football broadcasts.
“For several years now, the Tampa Bay Rays organization has been the gold standard in Major League Baseball, and one that I have hoped to work for ever since becoming the voice of the Montgomery Biscuits in 2016,” said Adams-Wall. “I can’t express how honored, humbled and thrilled I am to have the opportunity to join the Rays as the new pre- and postgame broadcaster, to be able to work alongside the rest of the organization and to continue to keep fans across the globe connected with their spectacular team.”
Adams-Wall will officially begin broadcasting on the Rays Radio Network on Thursday, June 22. He will also host This Week in Rays Baseball during the regular season and contribute to Rays digital programming year-round.
