Meet the voice of the Inaugural Parade since 1949
In the past 63 years there have been 15 inaugural parades. But although the presidential names have changed, there has always been only one presidential announcer.
WASHINGTON (WUSA) -- A local legend is preparing for the presidential inauguration.
Charlie Brotman has been the voice of so many inaugural parades, at one point, a friend had to remind him when he started.
Well it turns out the year was 1949. Which means President Obama's second--will also be Charlie Brotman's 16th inauguration.
