Bromley will once again handle the pre-game, halftime and post-game anchor duties on the telecasts and will conduct interviews during those periods with prominent people in attendance. He will also handle the duties of updating scores from around the country.
Bromley has been the sports director at WKYT-TV in Lexington since 1980, when he took over those duties from the legendary Denny Trease, who now serves as the TV "voice" of the Kansas City Royals.
Bromley is a graduate of Butler University in Indianapolis and worked as a sports anchor in Lima, Ohio, before joining the WKYT-TV staff in 1977.
Jack "Goose" Givens returns to the UK Television Network this year as an analyst for several of the games.
