My god. Had to listen to Allen Bestwick during the entire NASCAR race today, and now Chris Collinsworth during this Vikings Packers game. They are both in a tie for being the most annoying announcers on TV. Although Collinsworth may have a slight edge right now.

ESPN replaces longtime motorsports announcer Reid: ESPN says motorsports announcer Marty Reid is no longer with the network. Reid had been with ESPN since 1982 and is the only television play-by-play announcer to cover five different North American motorsports series. He's called NASCAR's Sprint Cup, Nationwide and Truck Series, as well as IndyCar and NHRA. An ESPN spokesman says the network is going in a different direction and Allen Bestwick will call the remainder of the Nationwide Series races this season. Reid was the network's lead announcer for IndyCar and that position will be addressed later.
Another conspiracy: Allen Bestwick is actually TV/movie star Ted Knight. Listen to the laugh people!
