Tommy Edwards, the long-time public address announcer for the Chicago Bulls is retiring after a career that spanned 43 years. Edwards is stepping down this month after 25 years with the team. Famous for making the song Sirius by Eye in the Sky synonymous with the Chicago Bulls, Edwards became beloved as a voice for the Bulls. Also spending time in both Boston and Los Angeles, Edwards made a pretty lucrative radio career
Edwards spent three different stints with the team from 1976-1981, 1983-1990, and then 2006 to now. During his time with the team, he was fortunate to be a part of the team drafting players such as legend Michael Jordan and Derrick Rose. Edwards, unfortunately, missed the glory years of the nineties but his voice is as recognizable as anyone in sports. He will be sorely missed.
