Alan Richard “Al” Michaels – born 12 November 1944 – is NBC’s Sunday Night Football commentator.
After nearly three decades (1977–2006) with ABC Sports, Michaels is perhaps best known for his many years calling play-by-play of National Football League games, including nearly two decades with Monday Night Football.
He is also known for famous calls in other sports, including the Miracle on Ice at the 1980 Winter Olympics and the earthquake-interrupted Game 3 of the 1989 World Series.
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.
