2012 NCAA Tournament Announcers

March Madness is just about here folks and we know you have been waiting. Just like last year, every game will of the 2012 NCAA Men's Basketball Tournament will be shown nationally on either CBS, TBS, TNT or truTV. The CBS/Turner consortium worked wonders last year and should again this year. And here are the announcers for the 2012 NCAA Tournament.

* Calling a regional

1. Jim Nantz, Clark Kellogg, Tracy Wolfson*
2. Marv Albert, Steve Kerr, Craig Sager*
3. Verne Lundquist, Bill Raftery, Lesley Visser*
4. Kevin Harlan, Len Elmore, Reggie Miller, Marty Snider*
5. Ian Eagle, Jim Spanarkel, Lewis Johnson
6. Brian Anderson, Dan Bonner, Jenn Hildreth
7. Tim Brando, Mike Gminski, Otis Livingston
8. Spero Dedes, Bob Wenzel, Jaime Maggio

So the answer of who will be replacing Gus Johnson is finally answered. Harlan and Miller are moved up to replace Johnson and work a regional with Elmore and replacing Harlan is Brian Anderson, who has called college hoops for BTN and you may know from calling the NLCS last year on TBS and is someone I think is very good. He's also somebody that was not on my radar since I am utterly brilliant.

First Four games on Tuesday, March 13th will be called by Nantz, Kellogg, Kerr and Wolfson and the First Four games on Wednesday, March 14th will be called by Eagle, Spanarkel and Johnson. Both days' games will be in Dayton, Ohio.

Studio coverage will be anchored in New York by Greg Gumbel and Ernie Johnson with analysis from Greg Anthony, Kenny Smith and Charles Barkley and in Atlanta it will be hosted by Matt Winer with analysis from Seth Davis and Steve Smith. Johnson will shift to Atlanta on the second weekend.
