Johnson Sr.'s life to be celebrated Wednesday
CHICAGO -- Ernie Johnson Sr.'s life will once again be celebrated Wednesday afternoon, when Braves radio partner 680 The Fan airs a special Clubhouse Report. The show will begin at 2:30 p.m. ET and feature interviews with Braves broadcasters Don Sutton, Jim Powell, Chip Caray and Joe Simpson.

Some of Johnson's most memorable calls will also be heard during this half-hour special. Along with 680-AM, the show will also be available on 93.7-FM and 680thefan.com.

Johnson passed away on Aug. 12 at the age of 87. Most often remembered for his role as a broadcaster in Atlanta, he spent 50 years as a part of the Braves organization. His roots date back to 1950, when he made his Major League debut as a pitcher for the Boston Braves.
