11th Presidential Inauguration for announcer Charlie Brotman
Posted by Staff
In the past 63 years—through rain, sleet, snow, and bone-chilling cold—there have been 15 inaugural parades. But in all that time, there has been only one presidential announcer.

Charlie Brotman, a gregarious and loquacious 85-year-old, began his voluntary stint announcing Harry Truman’s inauguration in 1949, and he will be back on his perch atop the glass-enclosed media complex directly across from the White House for Barack Obama’s second inauguration on Jan. 21.
