According to the Newsday.com article, the announcement was made in late 2015:

“Late last year Fox announced that it would move Smoltz into its No. 1 booth alongside Joe Buck, where he will replace Harold Reynolds and Tom Verducci, who filled the role for two seasons after the departure of Tim McCarver.”

The article goes on to point out that Smoltz gives credit to “many of the play-by-play men with whom he has worked for getting him to this point, and said he believes Buck will lift him as well.”

Smoltz will work 15 regular-season games for Fox plus 15 to 18 games for MLB Network plus 80 to 85 days in MLB Network’s New Jersey studios.

John Smoltz is a former MLB pitcher, Hall of Famer, Cy Young Award winner and World Series Champion. He was predominantly known as a starting pitcher for the Atlanta Braves and is the only pitcher in Major League history to top both 200 wins and 150 saves. He became the 16th member of the 3,000 strikeout club on April 22, 2008 when he struck out Felipe Lopez of the Washington Nationals in the third inning in Atlanta.
