Caray, who comes from a background of sports broadcasters, is a St. Louis native.

In 2005, Caray joined his father, Skip Caray, broadcasting games for the Atlanta Braves. In 2007, when his father left play-by-play announcing to broadcast on the Braves radio network, Chip Caray became the main play-by-play announcer.

“Just to watch the way he interacts with players and coaches, his smile everyday will be missed here in Atlanta,” he said.
