LEGENDARY ANNOUNCER DOC EMRICK CALLING IT A CAREER

After close to 50 years calling NHL games, announcer Mike 'Doc' Emrick is hanging up his microphone effective immediately.

“I hope I can handle retirement OK,” he told the New York Post Sunday night from his home in Michigan. "Especially since I’ve never done it before. But I’ve just been extremely lucky for 50 years. And NBC has been so good to me, especially since the pandemic, when I was allowed to work from home in a studio NBC created.

“Now, into my golden years, this just seemed to be the time that was right."

“Plus, I’ve now accumulated enough frequent-flyer miles — to not go anywhere.”

Emrick, 74, has been the lead play-by-play announcer on the NHL on NBC since the 2005-06 season. Before that, he worked for a number of teams and television stations as a hockey announcer. Emrick is a 19-year cancer survivor. He earned his Ph.D and nickname in broadcasting while at Bowling Green. He is in seven Halls of Fame at this time.



“Doc is a national treasure," said Sam Flood, executive producer of NBC Sports. "Simply put, he’s one of the best ever to put on a headset.”
