Dick Enberg

I’ve been a lifelong fan of sport. When I walk into a broadcast booth, I walk in well-prepared, but also as a fan. And I think that combination should make for good listening.

Dick Enberg is one of America’s most respected sportscasters.

Enberg earned master’s and doctorate degrees in health sciences at Indiana University, where he voiced the first radio broadcast of the Little 500.

He has covered virtually every major sport and event in his career: Super Bowls, college football and basketball, Olympic Games, major league baseball including the World Series, NBA basketball, the U.S. Open, and heavyweight title fights.

Enberg has won thirteen Sports Emmy Awards, has been named National Sportscaster of the Year nine times, and is a member of the National Sportscasters and Sportswriters Hall of Fame.
