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.
