Kerry Eggers of the Portland Tribune reported yesterday that Portland Trail Blazers radio broadcaster Brian Wheeler will return to the microphone for a 19th season next year.

Wheeler has served as the radio voice of the Blazers since 1998, which by our count would make this his 20th season with the team. He is only the second broadcaster to hold that position in the history of the franchise.

No word yet on whether Wheeler will be working with a permanent partner in the booth or whether he’ll tackle this season as the only constant radio presence with fill-in analysts, as was the practice last year.
