San Francisco 49ers Broadcast Changes: Analyst Gary Plummer Out, Eric Davis In


Seems like change is sweeping the San Francisco 49ers these days.  The team announced this afternoon that Comcast SportsNet analyst and former Niner cornerback Eric Davis is replacing Gary Plummer on 49er radio broadcasts.

Eric Davis is the new color analyst for the U.S. Bank 49ers Radio broadcast on KNBR 680 AM, joining play-by-play man Ted Robinson in the booth for all 49ers games.

"This is huge," Davis told 49ers.com. "The organization wants me to represent the team, and to me, being an old-school Niner – that’s a big deal.

"There are only 32 of these in the world and I’m glad I have one of them."

Bay Area media critic Rich Lieberman received this statement on the change from Bob Sargent, the 49ers Director of Broadcasting.

The quality work that Eric Davis has done on Comcast and as the color analyst on CBS 5 during our pre-season broadcasts really caught my attention and became impossible to ignore. With a new era of 49ers football upon us with Coach Harbaugh it seemed liked a perfect opportunity to promote Eric and take our broadcasts in a new direction. I'm very excited.

Davis has served as color commentator for 49er preseason broadcasts the last three seasons and analyzed football on various CSN Bay Area programming, such as 49ers PostGame Live, the last two years.
