Adam Amin

Play-by-Play Announcer

Adam Amin has been a play-by-play commentator for ESPN since joining the company in 2011 at age 24, immediately becoming one of the network’s youngest game-callers. He calls a multitude of sports and events including ESPN’s College Football Friday Primetime series, Major League Baseball, college basketball, and has been on play-by-play and hosting duties for the Women’s College World Series, NCAA Wrestling Championships, the McDonald’s High School All-American Games, and NCAA tournament coverage of volleyball and baseball.

In 2017, Amin became the lead play-by-play voice for women’s college basketball, alongside Kara Lawson and Rebecca Lobo. Play-by-play of MLB and NBA broadcasts for ESPN Radio is also part of his portfolio and, in 2016, he assumed the role of lead voice for “The NFL on ESPN Radio.” From 2012-2015, Amin provided play-by-play for Sports USA Radio on NFL and select college football broadcasts. In 2013, he was on the mic for Peyton Manning’s record-setting 51st touchdown pass as well as Auburn’s incredible last-second “Kick Six” victory versus Alabama in the Iron Bowl. He holds the distinction of being the youngest play-by-play announcer to ever call a New Year’s Six Bowl Game after working on ESPN Radio’s coverage of the 2016 Fiesta Bowl.

From 2007-11, he handled play-by-play, hosting and reporting tasks for Turner Sports Digital/NCAA Productions, FOX Sports Wisconsin, the Illinois High School Association and the Horizon League Network. Before joining ESPN, Amin had stops in Gary, Ind. and Somerset, NJ calling minor league baseball, was a studio host for football and basketball broadcasts at Valparaiso University, and served a stint as Sports Director at KUOO Radio in Spirit Lake, Iowa.

A native of Addison, Ill., Amin graduated with a degree in television and radio from Valparaiso University where he was twice named Indiana Collegiate Sportscaster of the Year by the state association of broadcasters. In 2009, he was a finalist for the Jim Nantz Award and honored as one of the top five collegiate sportscasters in America.
