Two familiar faces and one new addition to the team.

Atlanta United officially announced its television broadcast team for the 2018 season on Thursday.

As previously announced, Kevin Egan will be the play-by-play announcer, replacing Alan Green. Egan worked five games last year while Green completed his radio duties overseas, but will serve as the play-by-play voice for the entire season with Green’s exit. If you haven’t done so already or just want to read it again, you should totally check out Egan’s farewell post from last year here.

Dan Gargan, the color commentator, will be returning for his second season in the booth as expected. The former MLS defender worked with both Alan Green and Kevin Egan last season.

The only new addition is host and sideline reporter Jillian Sakovits, replacing Brittany Arnold. Sakovits has worked around MLB, NHL, and (most recently) MLS. She’s been working with MLS since 2015, where she first covered Portland on Decision Day. She has done a terrific job in her short time with MLS and I’m excited to see what she’ll bring to Atlanta.
