HuttonTitansRadioNASHVILLE, Tenn. – Jonathan Hutton, who’s been part of Titans' broadcasts on the radio for 15 years, is out as part of the Titans Radio team.

Hutton is a close friend who I worked with for nine years on The Midday 180 on The Zone, the Titans' flagship, and with whom I will co-host OutKick 360 along with Chad Withrow beginning on March 15.

A good segment of the fan base saw him as a solid candidate to ultimately succeed Mike Keith as the team’s radio play-by-voice someday.

Perhaps he still will be as Keith, recently elevated to vice president of broadcasting by the franchise, is a long way from done.

“I was aware there was a possibility I wouldn’t be allowed back when I chose to leave104.5 The Zone in January for Outkick,” Hutton said. [Unlocked]

“Jonathan Hutton has certainly been a big part of 104.5 The Zone’s Titans Radio broadcast over the years,” said Allison Warren VP and Market Manager for Cumulus Nashville, via email. “However, regrettably Jonathan declined our offer to continue with 104.5 The Zone deciding to pursue other opportunities which has impacted his role on the Titans Radio broadcast.”

Gil Beverly, the Titans’ executive who oversees the team’s dealings with the radio station and Titans Radio echoed Warren’s statement.

Hutton began working with Titans Radio as network producer in 2005.

He then became the sideline reporter in 2014 for the team’s highly regarded radio broadcasts that featured Keith and Frank Wycheck through 2016 and then saw Dave McGinnis take over as the color analyst in 2017.

Hutton moved from the sideline to the booth in 2018, where he became the gameday host, handling the pregame show, in-game updates and the post-game show.

He was also a big part of the draft coverage going so far as to host a spread-out broadcast of the 2020 draft from his garage amid Covid-19 restrictions.

“I will be listening to the upcoming draft coverage," Hutton said. "And, as the Titans face their slate of opponents this fall, I can’t wait to drive and listen to the best radio crew in the NFL crush another broadcast knowing it was done the right way."

Buck Reising, who has a new show on The Zone, has a developing relationship with the Titans that includes a yet-to-be-determined role on Titans Radio.
