Later that year, Anderson resigned as a referee, and became a ring announcer exclusively for pay-per-view events (although he still made sporadic appearances on regular WWE programming), debuting at King of the Ring of that year.

Not long after Unforgiven of that year, Anderson moved into the broadcast booth on Tuesday Night Titans, as a color commentator. He reportedly received advice from former WWE broadcasters, including color commentator Randy Savage, and future WWE Hall of Famers Jim Ross and "Mean" Gene Okerlund. When Titans was cancelled in late 1992, Anderson left the company.
