Joe Buck Booking Agency Profile

Sports broadcaster, Joe Buck, was born on April 25, 1969 in St. Petersburg, Florida. Buck is the son of the late Hall of Fame sportscaster Jack Buck. He has won numerous Sports Emmy Awards for his play-by-play work with Fox Sports Television.

In 1994 Buck was hired by FOX, and at the age of 25 became the youngest man ever to announce a regular slate of National Football League games on network television.

In 1996 Buck was named FOX's lead play-by-play voice for Major League Baseball, teaming with Tim McCarver, who had previously worked with Joe's father on CBS. That year, he became the youngest man to do a national broadcast (for all nine innings and games, as a network employee as opposed to simply being a representative of one the participating teams) for a World Series, surpassing Sean McDonough, who called the 1992 World Series for CBS at the age of 30. McDonough had replaced Jack Buck as CBS' lead baseball play-by-play man after the elder Buck was fired in late 1991.

On September 8, 1998 Joe Buck called Mark McGwire's 62nd home run that broke Roger Maris' single-season record. The game was nationally televised live in prime time on FOX. It was a rarity for a nationally televised regular season game to not be aired on cable since the end of the Monday Night Baseball era on ABC in 1989.

During FOX's broadcast of the 2002 World Series, Joe Buck paid implicit tribute to his father, who had died only a few months earlier (he had read the eulogy at his father's funeral), by calling the final out of Game 6 (which tied the series at 3-3, and thus ensured there would be a Game 7 broadcast the next night) with the phrase, "We'll see you tomorrow night." This was the same phrase with which Jack Buck had famously called Kirby Puckett's home run off Braves pitcher Charlie Leibrandt which ended Game 6 of the 1991 World Series. Since then he has continued to use this phrase at appropriate times.

His low-key statement "St. Louis has a World Series winner," at the close of the 2006 World Series, echoed a long-time catchphrase of Jack Buck's, at the close of any Cardinals victory: "And that's a winner!"

Joe Buck became Fox Sports' lead NFL play-by-play man in 2002 (taking over for Pat Summerall), teaming with Cris Collinsworth and Troy Aikman as color commentators and Pam Oliver as the sideline reporter. Buck is only the third announcer to handle a television network's lead MLB and NFL coverage in the same year (following NBC's Curt Gowdy and ABC's Al Michaels). By 2002, Buck's FOX duties forced him to cut his local Cardinal schedule to 25 games. Whenever Joe Buck has been on a postseason Major League Baseball assignment, Dick Stockton (and Kenny Albert beginning in 2007), who coincidentally was the back-up announcer behind Jack Buck for CBS' baseball telecasts in the early 1990s, would fill-in for him.

On February 6, 2005, Buck called his first Super Bowl, as the New England Patriots defeated the Philadelphia Eagles for their third championship in four years. His father called 17 Super Bowls for CBS television and radio in the 1970s, 1980s, and 1990s.

Cris Collinsworth left for NBC in 2005. Buck, Aikman, and Oliver continue to serve as the lead NFL on FOX broadcast crew.

On August 14, 2006, Buck was named the host of FOX's pregame NFL show, FOX NFL Sunday and postgame doubleheader show. According to the Nielsen ratings system, viewership was down for the entire season.[citation needed] FOX announced in March 2007 that Buck would no longer host FOX NFL Sunday in 2007, concentrating on play-by-play for the week's marquee game.

In the late 1990s, Buck hosted a weekly sports-news show, Goin' Deep, for Fox Sports Net cable. He also called horse racing and professional bass fishing events early in his FOX career, as well as the network's first Cotton Bowl telecast in 1999.

Part of Buck's broadcast (with McCarver and Bob Brenly) of Game 5 of the 1997 American League Championship Series could be heard in the background of one of the recordings Linda Tripp made of a conversation between herself and Monica Lewinsky, regarding the latter's affair with then-President Bill Clinton.

Since 2001, Buck has hosted the "Joe Buck Classic", a celebrity pro-am golf tournament that is played each May to raise money for St. Louis Children's Hospital.

On a Season 3 episode of Lost, Ben shows Jack a clip of the last play of the 2004 World Series, and Buck can be heard speaking his famous line,

“ Red Sox fans have longed to hear it: the Boston Red Sox are world champions! ”

Buck has appeared numerous times on Late Night with Conan O'Brien as a guest. During an appearance prior to the 2006 World Series, Buck was handed a garish necktie that had previously been worn by O'Brien and bandleader Richie "LaBamba" Rosenberg and agreed to wear it for Game 1, a promise that he honored. On an appearance prior to the 2007 World Series, Buck explained to O'Brien that sometimes his friends text message him during games and dare him to work words or phrases into the broadcast. O'Brien asked him to say "Jub-Jub" during a World Series broadcast, and if he did, he would donate $1,000 to a charity of Buck's choice. During the third inning of Game 1, Buck duly obliged: "Our own little Jub Jub, Chris Myers, playing the role of weather person..."

In 2007 Buck filmed a pilot episode for a prospective late-night talk and comedy program with former Saturday Night Live writer and director Matt Piedmont. Piedmont and Buck wrote and produced the pilot with Piedmont directing, filming in New York City and Los Angeles and featuring Molly Shannon, David Spade and Paul Rudd. Buck is the host of the show with Abebe Adusmussui, an actual New York City taxi driver, as his co-host. The pilot is currently in consideration for a series on Fox.[5]

Buck has also appeared in various national television commercials for such clients as Holiday Inn and Budweiser beer. One of the more memorable spots for the latter had Buck goaded into using the catchphrase, Slamma-lamma-ding-dong! (He also does local commercials in the St. Louis market for the Suntrup chain of automobile dealerships.)

Buck also contributes occasional opinion pieces to The Sporting News. Joe is also a key contributor on Team 1380 on the ITD Morning After program in St. Louis.

Buck was the commencement speaker at Saint Louis University's 2008 commencement ceremony. His late father, Jack Buck, delivered SLU's commencement address in 1995.
