Ted Robinson signed to 5 year extension as voice of 49ers

SANTA CLARA -- The San Francisco 49ers announced Thursday a five-year contract extension with "The Voice of the 49ers," Ted Robinson. The agreement, which runs through 2018, will allow Robinson to have served a decade with the organization by the end of the agreement. Robinson's role in 49ers programming will continue to grow moving forward, as he will be very active with the team's website and television productions, in addition to other elements surrounding the opening of Levi's Stadium.



"I've learned through four seasons how significant the position of the voice of the 49ers is to the fan base," Ted Robinson said. "Luckily, we've had calls in the last two years that will live in 49ers history, and I look forward to many more at a time when our franchise is thriving both on and off the field with Levi's Stadium on the horizon."

I like the extension. At first I wasn't a fan of the switch to Ted. Mainly because he wasn't Joe Starky, who we all know was quick to get a little crazy/silly with his call of the game. But after a few games I really started to like Ted's call of the game. Very crisp and quick with info, yet knows when to get excited, but doesn't lose his cool. Congrats Ted.
Awesome. He's done a great job replacing the great Joe Starkey.
Took him a second to get comfortable (I still think he blew the game-winning TD-call in 2011 vs. Detroit), but now he's solid.

Agreed.






But that's not to take away from Ted. He does a great job, too.

I can agree with this.

x3.

I've warmed up to Robinson and really think he's done a great job but when I see things like the Smith to Davis pass to win the game against the Saints, or the Kaepernick run against GB, or the Bowman bat-down to win the NFC Championship game... I always think to myself: I wonder how nuts Starkey would have went.

I think it adds to it considering Starkey had to mull through all the garbage years in SF before he retired. It would have been great to hear him call the 2011 season. Oh what a bonanza!
