TUSCALOOSA, Alabama - Eli Gold will continue his role as Alabama football's play-by-play voice through 2017 after signing a four-year contract extension.

Gold has called every Crimson Tide football game since 1989, which includes two national championship games (1992, 2009). He also hosts "NASCAR Live," a nationally syndicated radio call-in show.

Phil Savage will continue to his role as color analyst, which he has done since 2008. Savage was an assistant with the Cleveland Browns under then-defensive coordinator Nick Saban. He also worked as director of player personnel for the Baltimore Ravens, and as general manager of the Browns.

As was reported last week, Chris Stewart is the new sideline reporter replacing Barry Krauss. Stewart also replaced Jim Dunaway as host of the Nick Saban TV Show. Stewart, who has been with Alabama since 1999, is the play-by-play voice of Tide men's basketball and baseball.

Tom Roberts, who has been with the broadcast team since 1979, continues to host the pregame show and will provide scoreboard updates.

Former Tide quarterback Tyler Watts and Todd Robbins will begin and end broadcasts. Watts has been with CTSN since 2007 and Robbins since 2005.

Tom Stipe continues his role as producer as he has since 1984. He also serves as the Southeastern Conference Broadcasters Association.

Butch Owens will continue to spot games as he has since 1989. Brian Roberts continues statistician since 1998.
