Sportscaster, Al Michaels was born on November 12, 1944 in Brooklyn, New York. Michaels is a prominent television sportscaster.
Michaels is now employed by NBC Sports after nearly three decades (1977 – 2006) with ABC Sports. Al Michaels is one of the most prominent members of his profession. He is probably best known for his broadcast of the Miracle on Ice, which culminated in his widely quoted catchphrase, "Do you believe in miracles? YES!"
Al Michaels is one of two sportscasters to be a play-by-play voice or host for the championships of the four major American pro sports, having called the Super Bowl, World Series, NBA Championships, Stanley Cup Finals (the last as a host, not play-by-play), and has called boxing matches, including exciting matchup of "Marvelous" Marvin Hagler vs. Thomas "The Hitman" Hearns for the undisputed middleweight championship of the world.
Baseball Hall of Famer Bob Wolff has also called the championships of the four majors, with the difference that Wolff's initial NFL Championship coverage came before the Super Bowl era. In addition, Michaels has served as host for all three Triple Crown races and the Indianapolis 500. He also served as a fill-in commentator for ABC's Pro Bowlers Tour in the late 1970s when original commentator Chris Schenkel was on assignment.
Michaels has won numerous awards during his career, including the Emmy Award for Outstanding Sports Personality (Play-by-Play Host) five times, the NSSA Award from the National Sportscasters and Sportswriters Association three times (he was also inducted into their Hall of Fame in 1998), and "Sportscaster of the Year" once each from the American Sportscasters Association and the Washington Journalism Review.
In October 2004, Michaels was awarded a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
