MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — The Minnesota Timberwolves announced Monday that Dave Benz will be the team’s television play-by-play announcer this season.

Benz will team up with color analyst Jim Peterson to call 75 Wolves games this season.

“I couldn’t be more excited to be the new television voice of the Timberwolves. It has been my lifelong dream to be an NBA play-by-play announcer,” said Dave Benz. “I look forward to calling many Timberwolves wins this season alongside Jim Petersen, who is one of the best in the business. I also look forward to meeting Timberwolves fans and sharing in their passion for this organization.”

Benz previously worked in the San Francisco Bay Area where he worked as a host, anchor and reporter for Comcast Sportsnet Bay Area.

“After a nationwide search, we were captivated by Dave’s call of a game and how he captures the moment,” said Ted Johnson, Wolves Sr. Vice President of Marketing/Communications & Chief Marketing Officer. “Dave has experience covering many teams in different leagues and we feel he will be a great fit for our emerging team.”
