In addition, Johnson will work the network’s Super Wednesday doubleheaders beginning in January, along with selected Tuesdays and Thursdays during the conference season.
“When Gus Johnson calls a game, there’s a feeling of anticipation and a sense that anything can happen. He brings a level of genuine excitement to the game that no one else does,” Big Ten Network President Mark Silverman said. “We’re also pleased to add a couple of faces who are new to the network, but familiar to Big Ten fans everywhere.”
Johnson has been with the Big Ten Network since 2008.
