602 in the 602 for Stockton
(an article from the Arizona Cardinals Week 3 Game Release Media Relations News)
When FOX play-by-play announcer Dick Stockton is in Arizona to call this Sunday’s game between the Cardinals and Bears, the local area code will match the number of NFL games he has called as a broadcaster. This week Stockton will be calling his 602nd career NFL game.
Stockton began his broadcasting career doing local radio and TV in his hometown of Philadelphia in 1965. He is among an elite group of announcers that have been with FOX since it began NFL coverage in 1994 and the 2018 season marks Stockton’s 25th with the NFL on FOX.
In his 40+ years as a professional broadcaster, Stockton has also covered MLB, the NBA, NCAA basketball, boxing, track & fi eld, the Pan Am Games and the Olympics. In 2009, he was named one of the top-50 network sportscasters of all time by the American Sportscasters Association.
Be sure to tune into FOX for this Sunday’s game at 1:25 p.m. between the Arizona Cardinals and the Chicago Bears to hear Dick call his 602nd NFL game.
