If you are someone who prefers to stay at home on the couch in front of your 60-inch flat screen as opposed to seeing a sporting event live, chances are the play-by-play broadcaster will have an indirect impact on your enjoyment of that event. Broadcasters can really enhance or diminish a viewing experience when it comes to watching any game. Here is a list of the top five national play-by-play broadcasters today.
Shulman took over “Sunday Night Baseball” for Jon Miller and has done a great job. His most notorious moment came in 2010 while broadcasting the ACC Championship, when Kyle Singler dove for a loose ball and crashed into him.
Maybe the most popular name on this list, Michaels has had a fantastic career. The current “Sunday Night Football” voice’s most famous broadcast came in the 1980 Winter Olympics, when he asked, “Do you believe in miracles? Yes!”
Tirico is the lead dog for “Monday Night Football.” However, his resume does not end there as he calls NBA and college basketball games, along with popular golf and tennis events, for ESPN and ABC.
The former “Madden” video game announcer has had legendary calls during the NCAA tournament and NFL games. He currently calls games for Fox, Showtime and the Big-Ten Network.
This hockey broadcaster can make a 5-0 game sound like a 1-1 tie. Emrick keeps viewers on the edge of their seats, and is such a pleasure to listen to during the Stanley Cup Playoffs.
