Epic sports: The Best Sports Commentators of All Time
An epic sports event won’t get the attention it deserves without epic sports commentators to capture the excitement of the moment. Here are the top 10 best sports commentators of all time. You’ll be amazed at some of these names!
There’s no doubt that Pat Summerall was one of the best sports commentators of all time. He had a way of making even the most mundane games sound epic. His smooth baritone voice was like music to the ears, and he always seemed to know exactly what to say.
He's the only NFL commentator to have won a Super Bowl as a head coach, and he did it with the Oakland Raiders. He's been in the booth for more than three decades now, and his energy and love for the game is still as strong as ever. Plus, he's got that great voice that just makes you want to listen to him talk about football all day long.
There's no denying that Al Michaels is one of the best sports commentators of all time. His career has spanned four decades, and he's been the voice of some of the most iconic moments in sports history. Along with partner John Madden, he called the entire game from start to finish when the Los Angeles Rams defeated the Tennessee Titans on January 30th, 2000 for Super Bowl XXXIV. He also announced many memorable games for NBC including two Super Bowls (XLVII and XLIX), two Olympics (the 1988 Winter Olympics in Calgary as well as the 1992 Summer Olympics in Barcelona), three NBA Finals (1991-1993) and ten NHL Stanley Cup Finals. And it doesn't stop there; his broadcasting resume also includes baseball, college football and basketball for CBS Radio/Westwood One, New York Rangers hockey for MSG Network/WFAN Radio/NHL Radio Network, World Championship Boxing on CBS Radio as well as New York Giants football on WFAN.
There's no doubt that Bill King was one of the best sports commentators of all time. His call of Hank Aaron's 715th home run is considered one of the most epic moments in sports history. King was known for his unique style and ability to capture the excitement of the game. He was also a great storyteller, often sharing interesting anecdotes about the players and teams he was covering. In addition to his work in baseball, King also called football, basketball, and hockey games. He was inducted into the National Radio Hall of Fame in 2005 and received the Ford C.
