The Mariners have turned to Gary Hill as executive producer/engineer of radio broadcasts, taking over for Kevin Cremin, who retired at the end of the 2017 season after 35 years.

Hill will run the broadcasts for the Mariners radio network, which is anchored by flagship station 710 ESPN Seattle.

“Gary is like a five-tool ballplayer. He can do it all,” said Kevin Martinez, Seattle Mariners Sr. Vice President, Marketing and Communications. ”He’s a creative producer, host, play-by-play announcer, content creator and he has a knack for translating statistics so the numbers tell a story. We’re excited about what Gary will bring to Mariners baseball as a full-time member of our broadcast team.”

Hill has hosted Mariners pre- and post-game shows and filled in as a play-by-play announcer since 2010.

“Since childhood, the answer to the question ‘What do you want to do with your life?’ has always been ‘I want to be part of the Mariners broadcast team.’ It’s what I’ve always hoped for,” said Hill, a Tacoma native.

Hill joins a broadcast team that includes announcers Rick Rizzs, Aaron Goldsmith, Mike Blowers and Dave Sims.

A graduate of Washington State University, Hill is also the voice of University of Washington women’s basketball and has been a fixture on Seattle radio calling college baseball, college softball, college football, and pro and college basketball.
