Tim Ryan and Greg Papa won’t be separated anytime soon.
The San Francisco 49ers announced Wednesday they’ve extended Ryan, the team’s radio color analyst, through the 2028 NFL season. Papa, the radio voice of the 49ers, and Ryan are locked up together through the 2028 season.
“Tim’s energy, passion, and special ability to provide insightful analysis has become an unmistakable part of 49ers broadcasts,” Al Guido, 49ers President, said in a press release. “When fans hear Tim’s voice, they think of 49ers football. His longevity with us, including one Super Bowl and three NFC Championship Games, has been a testament to his talent and continuously growing rapport with his partner, Greg Papa and the 49ers Faithful. Their dynamic in the booth leads to electric moments that fans can remember. We are fortunate to have one of the best broadcast duos in sports and we are thankful to be keeping them together.”
