Ted Davis, who has served as the Milwaukee Bucks radio play-by-play broadcaster since 1997, has retired from his role, the team announced today.

“This is a good time for me to move into the next phase of life,” said Davis. “I’m 65 and still good at what I do, but young enough to enjoy what’s next. It’s been an honor to call Bucks games for 24 seasons. When I was a younger man I had two goals: do play-by-play on the major league level and do it for a long time. Thirty-three years and 3,000 games later I leave with a championship call in my last game. Not bad! Thanks to all who listened. My dream came true!”

“We thank Ted for his 24 years of exciting and entertaining play-by-play calls on Bucks radio,” said Bucks president Peter Feigin. “Ted expertly set the scene and described the action for our fans, and his professionalism was always appreciated. His dramatic call after the Bucks won the title last month — ‘Wisconsin, we have a room at the top of the world tonight!’ — will always be part of Bucks history. We wish Ted all the best in his next chapter.”

Davis came to Milwaukee following nine seasons as the play-by-play voice for the Dallas Mavericks.
