Eli Gold to Miss Start of Season, Chris Stewart to Fill In

Eli Gold, the voice of the Alabama Crimson Tide, will be sidelined for at least the start of this season due to health issues. Chris Stewart, who already does basketball games for the Crimson Tide Sports Network, will fill in.

Gold is an Alabama icon who has been with CTSN since 1988 and has been a part of so many iconic moments in Alabama football history. Here is what Nick Saban had to say on Gold:

We here at WNSP wish Eli nothing but the best in his recovery and hope he can get back into the booth as quickly and safely as possible!
