Joe Buck Career

With the exception of 1997 and 1999, he has served as the World Series play-by-play announcer every year since 1996. Buck has called six Super Bowls, 23 World Series, and 25 Major League Baseball League Championship Series for the network. He was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame as the winner of the Pete Rozelle Radio-Television Award in 2020, while on-air during the Cleveland Browns-Cincinnati Bengals Thursday Night Football broadcast.
Buck has been the lead voice for FOX NFL since 2002, initially collaborating with analysts Aikman and Cris Collinsworth for three seasons (2002-04), before partnering exclusively with Aikman in 2005. The duo is the NFL’s second-longest-running broadcast team, trailing only broadcast legends Pat Summerall and John Madden. In addition to calling AMERICA’S GAME OF THE WEEK, the duo is joined for the network’s THURSDAY NIGHT FOOTBALL broadcasts by rules analyst Mike Pereira and reporters Erin Andrews and Kristina Pink. Buck, a seven-time Emmy Award winner, has been the lead FOX MLB play-by-play announcer since 1996.
In addition to calling major regular-season games, he co-announces the All-Star Game and MLB Postseason games with first-ballot Hall of Fame pitcher John Smoltz. Buck’s impressive FOX MLB resume includes the 1996, 1998, and 2000-19 World Series; the 1997, 1999, 2001, 2003-05, 2007, 2009, 2011, 2013, 2015, 2017, and 2019 American League Championship Series; the 1996, 1998, 2000, 2002, 2006, 2008, 2010, 2012, 2014, 2016, 2018, and 2020 National League Championship Series; and the 1997, 1999, 2001-19 All-Star Games. In 2013, he worked his 15th MLB All-Star Game with analyst Tim McCarver, giving him the most All-Star Games of any broadcast pair.
Buck called his 16th All-Star Game in 2014, passing Curt Gowdy for first place on the all-time list of play-by-play announcers. Joining FOX Sports, he and analyst Tim Green formed one of the network’s six original broadcast teams for the NFL. Buck was the youngest play-by-play announcer to call a full slate of NFL games on network television when he was 25 years old, and he was the youngest play-by-play announcer to call the World Series two years later.
From 1991 to 2007, Buck worked as a local radio and television announcer for the St. Louis Cardinals. His broadcasting career began while he was still a student at Indiana University in 1989. That year, he worked as a play-by-play announcer for the Louisville Redbirds of the American Association, the Cardinals’ minor-league affiliate, and as a reporter for ESPN’s coverage of the Triple-A All-Star Game.

Joe Buck hair transplant/hair plugs
Buck suffered a paralyzed left vocal cord a few years ago. He feared this for his broadcasting career and he says that it nearly cost him his career. The condition struck him a few weeks before the start of the 2011 baseball season, and it was not until the month of October of that year that he truly felt his voice was back. At the time, he told people that he had developed a virus in the laryngeal nerve of his left vocal cord.
As a youngster, one of his overwhelming fears was losing hair, and the possibility soon consumed him. When he was 24 years old, that is in October 1993, he flew to New York City to get his first hair replacement treatment.
