Joe Buck has been the voice of Fox Sports for more than two decades.
That won't be changing anytime soon.
According to Andrew Marchand of the New York Post, Buck and Fox have come an agreement on a new three-year deal. The pact will keep Buck as the lead voice of the NFL, professional golf and the World Series on the network.
Joe Buck considered not broadcasting the World Series anymore for Fox, but now has thought better of it.
Buck just signed a new three-year, multimillion-dollar extension that will not only keep him as Fox's lead voice on the NFL and golf, but also on baseball for at least as long as the network's current deal runs, sources told The Post and Buck confirmed.
In 2016, Buck hinted at backing away from his expansive baseball duties in the fall perhaps to focus solely on the NFL. That's no longer the case.
Part of the reason? Working with broadcast partner John Smoltz.
"If there is one person who has kind of changed that for me, it is John Smoltz," Buck told The Post.
Buck said working with Smoltz has made life really easy. Prior to Smoltz, Buck spent most of his 20 World Series in the booth with Tim McCarver. After McCarver retired from the big stage in 2013, Buck was joined by Harold Reynolds and Tom Verducci in 2014 and 2015.
Fox owns the rights to the World Series through the 2021 season. That means (at least) four more Octobers of Buck calling the biggest games of the year.
