Former University of Wisconsin basketball player Ben Brust will be the radio analyst for Milwaukee Bucks home games on WTMJ Radio and the statewide Bucks Radio Network, the team announced today.

Brust will join new Bucks play-by-play radio announcer Dave Koehn in the booth for games at Fiserv Forum this season. Brust replaces Dennis Krause, who served as Bucks radio analyst for many years.
