(670 The Score) There's a new voice of the Bulls on television.

The Bulls have named Adam Amin their new television play-by-play announcer, the organization announced Monday. Amin will replace longtime Bulls broadcaster Neil Funk, who will retire at the end of this regular season, which is currently suspended amid the coronavirus pandemic. Amin will work alongside analyst Stacey King on the television broadcasts on NBC Sports Chicago.

Amin recently left ESPN after working there for nine years, during which he worked a variety of broadcasts across multiple mediums. He has experience covering the NBA, college football, the NFL, MLB and more. 

Amin also recently joined Fox Sports, for which he will serve as a play-by-play announcer for the network's coverage on the NFL and MLB. Those responsibilities will cause Amin to miss some Bulls broadcasts, for which the team will use a substitute who will be announced at a later date.

Amin has done fill-in work as the Bulls' television play-by-play man over the past two seasons, so the organization was familiar with him.

"We knew replacing Neil would not be an easy task, but as we got to know Adam over the last two seasons and became even more familiar with his work, he rose to become our top choice," Bulls president Michael Reinsdorf said in a statement. "Adam knows our fans because he grew up a Bulls fan. That was important to us. We wanted to find someone who not only had the talent but who also understood our history and the role the Bulls play in the lives of our city and our fans.

"When he and Stacey worked together, we received so much positive feedback that I know our fans are going to really enjoy the work of this new broadcast duo. Adam brings strong credentials to this role, as well as an energy, charisma and innate storytelling ability that help him immediately connect with his audience whether he’s behind a microphone, at an event or on social media. He’s a perfect fit as our new TV play-by-play announcer to call the next generation of Bulls games, and we’re thrilled that he’s joining the Bulls family."

Amin graduated from Addison Trail High School and resides in Chicago now.
