Alan Richard “Al” Michaels – born 12 November 1944 – is NBC’s Sunday Night Football commentator.

Michaels covered a wide variety of sports for ABC, including Major League Baseball, college football, college basketball, ice hockey, track and field events, horse racing, golf, boxing, figure skating, road cycling, and many events of the Olympic Games as well as the Olympic trials.
