Associated Press

HOUSTON — The Houston Astros say they'll have a new radio broadcast team next season.

In an issued statement, the Astros say they've begun a search for a successor to veteran broadcaster Milo Hamilton, who announced that 2012 would be his last season as lead play-by-play announcer. Hamilton had been in the post since 1985.

The Astros also announced that the contracts of radio broadcasters Brett Dolan and Dave Raymond would not be renewed. Dolan and Raymond had been calling Astros games on radio since 2006.
