The Phoenix Suns of the National Basketball Association (NBA) had their inaugural season in 1968. Their radio play-by-play announcer Al McCoy, commonly dubbed as the Voice of the Phoenix Suns, has been with the team since 1972, which makes him the longest tenured NBA broadcaster.
McCoy began his broadcasting career in Webster City, Iowa during his freshman year at Drake University in 1951 covering the college basketball games. He then moved to Arizona in 1958.
While in Arizona, prior to his job with the Suns, McCoy did play-by-play for the Phoenix Giants, a Triple A affiliate of the Major League Baseball team San Francisco Giants. He also covered college football and basketball for Arizona State University and the Phoenix Roadrunners hockey team.
Al McCoy just finished his 47th season with the Suns and has expressed that he will only retire when it stops being fun.
