It comes from the longtime voice of Arizona State University athletics, Tim Healey, who was named the 2015 Arizona Sportscaster of the Year by the National Sports Media Association. He’s getting ready for his 19th season as the radio play-by-play voice for ASU football, men’s basketball and baseball.
Tim, time to share:
As a life-long sports fan, I knew as early as the eighth grade exactly what I wanted to do for a living. After graduating from Penn State University in 1973, I began my broadcasting career.
I worked at six television stations across the country, including KTVK-TV and KSAZ-TV in Phoenix, before becoming the radio Voice of the Sun Devils in 1998. Having done television play-by-play for ASU on Channel 3 from 1988-to-98, I’ve actually been broadcasting ASU athletics on TV or radio for 29 years and have been behind the mike for over 1,500 Sun Devil football, basketball and baseball game broadcasts. I’ve been fortunate to witness some amazing ASU moments:
Away from the broadcast booth, I enjoy spending time with my wife of nearly 43 years, Margie, and our family, which includes daughter Katie, son Joe, son-in-law Bryce Gerrich, and our first grandchild, Ella Celeste Gerrich, born in May 2016. My daughter Katie is the choral director at Tempe McClintock High School. My son Joe is an ASU graduate (class of ’06) and co-host of his own ASU football-themed podcast “Speak of the Devils.” Son-in-law Bryce Gerrich serves as my home-game spotter for Sun Devil football broadcasts. My wife Margie is the school secretary at St. Timothy Catholic School in Mesa. We’ve been parishoners at St. Timothy since 1984.
