The Chicago Bulls announced today a schedule for the team’s substitute TV play-by-play announcer through January 30. John Sadak, Kyle Draper, Brandon Gaudin, Mark Schanowski and Adam Amin will fill-in and work alongside Bulls TV analyst Stacey King for select games.

Gaudin covers college basketball, football and baseball for Fox Sports 1 and the Big Ten Network, in addition to calling the NCAA Tournament and NFL games on national radio for Westwood One. He is also known as the Play-by-Play voice of Madden NFL from EA Sports.
Schanowski, who covered all six Bulls championships as a sports reporter for WLS-TV , has been the Pre-and Post-Game host for all Chicago Bulls games on Comcast SportsNet/NBC Sports Chicago since 2005.
