Buffalo has been a breeding and training ground for some excellent broadcasters, some whom have gone on to national prominence. Wolf Blitzer, Don Criqui, and most recently Jeff Glor. Bill Rosinski has made his mark in sports broadcasting, and the credits are most impressive. He’s been the voice of two NFL teams, and calls all of the big college games in both football and basketball for ESPN Radio. I’m lucky to work with him on PGA Tour Radio, providing live play by play of the best golfers in the world.

We just worked the WGC Dell Technologies Match Play Championship together in Austin, Texas, and spent a few minutes chatting about his career, and the inspiration for it in Buffalo.
