CNN reports that the 89-year-old Brotman who has announced every inauguration parade since Dwight D. Eisenhower in 1957 expressed disappointment on Trump's move. "I looked at at my email, then I got the shock of my life," Brotman said.

"I felt like Muhammad Ali had hit me in the stomach."

To DAILY NEWS, Brotman said, “I was crushed.”

“I’m the only guy in the world who has ever done the announcing of a presidential inaugural parade for the past 60 years. And there’s no way, I thought, that I would not be the announcer.”

Steve Ray, a 56-year-old broadcaster who volunteered with the Trump campaign — will be the new man behind the microphone at the parade.
