MILWAUKEE (WKOW) -- With Ted Davis joining fellow Bucks personality Jim Paschke in well-earned retirement the Bucks announced that former voice of the Virginia Cavaliers Dave Koehn will be the new radio play-by-play announcer.

The team announced Koehn's hire Tuesday afternoon via a news release. Team president Peter Feigin credited his years of experience and expressed confidence in his hire.

“Dave brings a wealth of high-level radio play-by-play experience to the Bucks and we are thrilled to welcome him to Milwaukee," Feigin said. “His knowledge of basketball and tremendous ability to describe the action with enthusiasm makes him a perfect choice for this position.

Koehn worked as the main play-by-play man for Virginia basketball and football since 2008. He was named Virginia Broadcaster of the Year in 2020 by the National Sports Media Association.

“The Bucks are a world-class organization in a first-rate city, and I am thrilled to make Milwaukee my home,” Koehn said. “The chance to paint the picture and tell the story of the NBA champs as they defend their title is the stuff of dreams.”
