CBS Sports play-by-play announcer Jim Nantz was named the 2011 recipient of the Pro Football Hall of Fame’s Pete Rozelle Radio-Television Award.
The youngest recipient of the award at the age of 52, Nantz will be honored on Aug. 5 during the Enshrinees Dinner. The annual ward recognizes “long-time exceptional contributions to radio and television in professional football.
“It’s one of the greatest honors you could ever receive in our industry,” Nantz said. “I’m grateful to the Pro Football Hall of Fame for this recognition and thrilled to be in the company of the past recipients of the Pete Rozelle Award.”
Nantz joins Dick Enberg and Curt Gowdy as the only broadcasters to be recognized by both the Pro Football Hall of Fame and the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame.
