Joe Buck – born 25 April 1969 – is an American sports presenter and the son of legendary sports presenter Jack Buck.
Joe has won numerous Sports Emmy Awards for his work with Fox Sports, including his roles as lead play-by-play announcer for the network’s National Football League and Major League Baseball coverage.
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.
Soon after arriving at Fox, Buck became the play-by-play man on the network’s #4 NFL broadcast team, with Tim Green as his color commentator. After three years, he stopped doing NFL games to concentrate on his baseball duties. During the 2001 season, Buck occasionally filled in for Curt Menefee as the network’s number-six play-by-play man.
Buck became Fox’ top play-by-play man in 2002, replacing Pat Summerall. He is teamed with Troy Aikman as color commentators and Erin Andrews as the sideline reporter.
