Bob Brenly quits WGN; Is FOX Arizona next? [UPDATE: YES IT IS]

Bob Brenly and Steve Berthiaume will be the new Arizona Diamondbacks announcers on FSN Arizona.  Berthiaume is leaving ESPN to be the play by play announcer, while as reported just yesterday, Brenly left the Cubs WGN and is back with the team he managed to a World Title in 2001.

WGN-TV announced that Chicago Cubs broadcast analyst Bob Brenly is leaving the network. Brenly was hired for the 2005 season after Steve Stone acrimonious departure.  Its been speculated that Brenly will be heading to FOX Sports Arizona and be the main analyst for the Arizona Diamondbacks.  Brenly managed the Diamondbacks from 2001-2004 and led them to their only World title in 2001.  FSN-Arizona have been moving quickly to fill both commentator positions after the embarrassing circumstances that led to the departures of Daron Sutton and Mark Grace.

With the analyst position filled, there is no word on who FSN will be targeting to replace Sutton.
