Dan Hicks Is NBC Sportscaster

March 30, 2009

Meet Dan Hicks, an American play-by-play sports anchor and sportscaster for NBC who primarily does commentary for golf. See a video and a biography of Dan Hicks here.

Hicks is currently the NBC commentator for the on-going Arnold Palmer Invitational which was played at Bay Hill Club in Orlando, Florida. The tournament is special in the sense that Tiger Woods played in it. It’s not his comeback (it’s the second after he returned on the tour), but this tournament is something in which he’s been playing up to his reputation and he recently pulled off an exciting win to lift the title.

Going into commercial breaks, Hicks said, “One of the greatest things on a golf course, a Tiger Sunday Charge,” and “Tiger Woods, just one stroke behind.” co-commentator Johnny Miller uttered.

As a biography, Dan Hicks was born on June 2, 1962 in Tucson, Arizona so his age is 46. He attended University of Arizona in 1984 and has already worked for CNN as a sports reporter.

Hicks joined NBC to fill in the space left empty by Dick Enberg as the primary golf commentator. He also does play-by-play commentary for The AFL on NBC and Notre Dame football. His other duties include reporting for The NBA and The NFL on NBC.

Hicks became widely known after his commendable work as a special Olympics reporter. He has been involved in the coverage of many Olympics sports, specially swimming. He called for the network during their broadcasts of every Summer and Winter Olympics since 2000.

Dan has been married to Hannah Storm for 14 years, a sportscaster he met during his CNN days. She is now an anchor on ESPN’s SportsCenter.
