Al Michaels (born November 12, 1944 in Brooklyn, New York) is an American television sportscaster. Currently employed by NBC Sports after nearly three decades (1977 - 2006) with ABC Sports, Michaels is one of the most prominent and respected members of his profession. He is perhaps best known for his broadcast of the Miracle on Ice, which culminated in his widely-quoted catchphrase, "Do you believe in miracles? Yes!"
Michaels has won numerous awards during his career, including the Emmy Award for Outstanding Sports Personality (Play-by-Play Host) four times, the NSSA Award from the National Sportscasters and Sportswriters Association three times (he was also inducted into their Hall of Fame in 1998), and "Sportscaster of the Year" once each from the American Sportscasters Association and the Washington Journalism Review. In October 2004, Michaels was awarded a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
To date, Michaels is one of two sportscasters to be a play-by-play voice or host for the championships of the four major American pro sports, having called the Super Bowl, World Series, NBA Championships, and Stanley Cup Finals (the latter as a host, not play-by-play). In addition, Michaels has served as host for all three Triple Crown races and the Indianapolis 500. Baseball Hall of Famer Bob Wolff has also called the championships of the four majors, with the difference that Wolff's initial NFL Championship coverage came before the Super Bowl era.
