The Milwaukee Bucks have named Lisa Byington as the team's new television play-by-play announcer on Bally Sports Wisconsin.

Byington will become the the first woman to handle full-time TV play-by-play duties for a major men's professional sports team.

Byington replaces longtime Bucks announcer Jim Paschke.

Byington, who previously did play-by-play for the Women's World Cup on Fox in 2019, became the first woman to call NCAA men's basketball tournament games in March as part of the CBS/Turner Sports coverage.
