Renel Brooks-Moon goes on social media to thank San Francisco and Giants fans

After two days of emotional social media posts and sports talk by fans about the Giants’ controversial split with their longtime public-address announcer, Renel Brooks-Moon on Wednesday evening had a message for San Francisco and Giants fans: Thank you!

Brooks-Moon, who has been the Giants’ PA voice since the team moved into its waterfront ballpark in 2000, wrote a lengthy post on her Instagram account as her first extended public comments on the breakup. She was quoted in a statement the team released Monday when it announced that “although they discussed an extension of Brooks-Moon’s contract which ended in December 2023, after extensive discussions they mutually and amicably agreed to part ways” and she won’t be in her familiar role this season.

The trailblazing former radio host used the platform on Wednesday to say thank you to her fans and friends and offered words of encouragement to her successor and new Giants manager Bob Melvin, but did not address the decision specifically in the post.

“Dear San Francisco and San Francisco Giants Fans,” Brooks-Moon wrote, “Needless to say, it’s been an emotional few days. But couldn’t let another day go by w/o expressing my gratitude for your overwhelming support, love and concern.”

She added, “It was, and always will be, the greatest honor of my life and career to serve as your PAA and community ambassador.”

Brooks-Moon noted that she was a “Giants fan in utero” because her mother — “a huge baseball & Giants fan” — was pregnant with Renel when the Giants moved from New York in 1958.

Brooks-Moon praised her co-workers at the stadium as well as on NBCSports Bay Area among the memories she and her husband, Tommie, made during her time behind the mic.

She wrote, in part, “We have shared so many great times together over 24 years. Tommie and I have become personal friends w/ so many of you, which has been a joy!

“I will miss you all so much. From our pregame selfies and hugs – (you know I’m gonna hug!), your generous and unique gifts, (shout out “bracelet sisters”), to just talking baseball before and after games, and so much more. And all the precious babies I have held!

“Shout out to sections 214 and 213, right below the booth! Oh did we have fun during the 7th inning stretch!
