LAST LUNCHEON JUN. 16, 2017
Honoree: Al Michaels
Our June 18 celebrity luncheon honored famed television sportscaster Al Michaels. PPB President Alan Perris presented Al with PPB's Art Gilmore Career Achievement Award.
Now employed by NBC Sports and NFL Network after nearly three decades with ABC Sports, Michaels is known for his many years calling play-by-play of National Football League games, including nearly two decades with Monday Night Football. He is also known for famous calls in other sports, including the Miracle on Ice at the 1980 Winter Olympics and the earthquake-interrupted Game 3 of the 1989 World Series.
Al, born in Brooklyn, was a Brooklyn Dodgers fan growing up. As the Dodgers moved to Los Angeles, so did Al's family, relocating here in 1958. He has been married to his wife, Linda, since 1966, and they have two children, Jennifer and Steven, who is also working in the entertainment industry.
