In just eight years, Joe Buck has earned the distinction as one of sports’ premier play-by-play broadcasters, as evidenced by his Emmy Award wins in 1999 and 2001. This season Buck teams with future Hall of Famer Troy Aikman and fellow Emmy Award-winner Cris Collinsworth to comprise the NFL on FOX’ No. 1 broadcast team. With this newest addition to Buck’s versatile resume, he becomes the first play-by-play announcer to handle lead MLB and NFL coverage in the same year since NBC’s Curt Gowdy and ABC’s Al Michaels.
Buck began his network play-by-play career in the NFL on FOX broadcast booth, where he worked from 1994-1997. He and NFL on FOX analyst Tim Green formed one of the network's original six NFL broadcast teams in 1994, when at age of 25, Buck was the youngest announcer to call a regular slate of NFL games on television.
During the MLB on FOX season, Buck teams with Emmy Award-winning analyst Tim McCarver. In April, each brought home his second award for Outstanding Play-by-Play and Event Analyst, respectively. Buck capped off a stellar rookie campaign for MLB on FOX in 1996 when, at age 27, he became the youngest play-by-play announcer to call a World Series since the legendary Vin Scully (25) sat behind the mike during the 1953 Fall Classic. Buck's impressive MLB on FOX resume includes the 1996, 1998, 2000 - 2002 World Series, the 1997, 1999 and 2001 American League Championship Series, the 1996, 1998, 2000 - 2002 National League Championship Series, the 1997, 1999, 2001 and 2002 All-Star Games, as well as Mark McGwire's historic 62nd home run game on September 8, 1998.
Buck has been a radio and television announcer for the St. Louis Cardinals since 1991. His broadcasting career began in 1989, while he was an undergraduate at Indiana University. That year he did baseball play-by-play for the Louisville Redbirds of the American Association, a minor league affiliate of the Cardinals, and was a reporter for ESPN’s coverage of the Triple-A All-Star Game.
The son of broadcasting legend Jack Buck, Joe Buck attended Indiana University, studying English and Telecommunications. He was born April 25, 1969, in St. Petersburg, Fla., the Cardinals spring training home, and was raised in St. Louis where he currently resides with his wife Ann, and their daughters Natalie and Trudy.
