49ers radio announcer Ted Robinson is sticking around for five more years

Kelley L Cox-US PRESSWIRE

The 49ers are bringing back Ted Robinson through 2018. The "Voice of the 49ers" is a fan favorite, and has called some classics in his time with the franchise.

The San Francisco 49ers announced on Thursday that radio play-by-play man Ted Robinson will be around for at least five more years. Robinson signed a five-year contract extension that will keep him with the team through 2018. The 49ers indicated his role will grow during this new contract, including work with the team's website and television productions. The 49ers also indicated Robinson would be involved in "elements surrounding the opening of Levi's Stadium."

"I've learned through four seasons how significant the position of the voice of the 49ers is to the fan base," Ted Robinson said. "Luckily, we've had calls in the last two years that will live in 49ers history, and I look forward to many more at a time when our franchise is thriving both on and off the field with Levi's® Stadium on the horizon."

Robinson has been with the team since 2009, and has been a part of the Bay Area sports scene even longer. He has done Giants, A's, Warriors and Stanford football. His work with NBC also included Olympics, Wimbledon and French Open coverage.

For 49ers fans, he will long be remembered for his call of Alex Smith's game-winning touchdown pass to Vernon Davis to defeat the New Orleans Saints. You can watch a clean version at NFL.com, but the video below is much more fun. It includes Robinson's call, but also includes fan reactions at the game and around the Bay Area.
