NFL on FOX Broadcaster; Has Covered the NBA Finals, Superbowl, MLB Playoffs, and NCAA Tournament

One of the most recognizable voices in sports television, Dick Stockton celebrates his 22nd season with FOX Sports in 2015 as a NFL on FOX play-by-play announcer. His recent work for FOX Sports also has included MLB on FOX broadcasts. He also calls play-by-play for TNT’s NBA coverage, and has served in the same role for TBS’ coverage of the MLB division series.

Considered one of the most versatile broadcasters with more than 35 years of experience, Stockton's vast resume includes 17 years at CBS Sports from 1978-1994. During that time, he worked NFL regular season and playoffs, NCAA regular season and tournament basketball, the World Swimming and Diving Championships, championship boxing, track and field as well as the Olympic Games. Stockton called the gold medal-winning performances by speed skaters Dan Jansen and Bonnie Blair, moments which he considers to be among the highlights of his career.

Stockton also has called regular season and NBA playoff games for Turner Sports. In 2001, he was honored with the Curt Gowdy Award from the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame in Springfield, Mass.

Stockton arrived at CBS Sports fulltime in 1978 to work NFL games where his partners included Roger Staubach, Hank Stram, Dan Fouts, Merlin Olsen, Terry Bradshaw, Dan Dierdorf and Wayne Walker. In addition to his NFL work, he was the lead announcer for the NBA on CBS from 1982 to 1990, including the memorable Lakers-Celtics NBA Finals in that decade. Stockton also appeared weekly on CBS Sports coverage of Major League Baseball from 1990 to 1992, including three American League Championship Series.

Stockton was the voice of Red Sox baseball from 1975 through 1978 at WSBK-TV in Boston. In 1975 he called Carlton Fisk's legendary 12th-inning home run in the sixth game of the World Series for NBC Sports ("if it stays fair......home run!") NBC also employed him from 1976 and 1977 to cover NFL games and NCAA tournament basketball. He called play-by-play of Oakland A's games for KRON-TV in San Francisco for three years beginning in 1995.

From 2001 through 2008, Stockton called the Super Bowl for the NFL to an international audience of more than 230 countries.

Stockton graduated from Syracuse University in 1964 with a degree in speech dramatic arts and journalism.
