CBS Philly reports: “Dan Baker has one of the most well-known voices in Philadelphia. That voice will be heard in one less place this fall. The Philadelphia Eagles announced Wednesday that Baker will no longer be the in-stadium voice for the team. Baker has been the team’s PA announcer for 29 years. The team informed Baker of the decision last week.”
Twitter’s reaction was swift:
Like really, WTAF could Dan Baker have done that the eagles thought "We can do better than this"?

I can't believe the Dan Baker news. It's like they cut Dawkins all over again.

Eagles moving on without Dan Baker, PA voice for 29 seasons. One of the nicest, most professional guys ever in Philly. Still with Phillies.
