What sportscaster, known for his catch phrase, “Oh my!” joined CBS in 2000 as a play-by-play announcer for the NFL?
Richard Alan “Dick” Enberg, Ph.D. (born January 9, 1935) is a retired American sportscaster. He provided play-by-play for various sports on numerous radio and television networks (including NBC, CBS, and ESPN), and for individual teams, over the course of an approximately 60-year career.
Enberg is well known for his signature on-air catchphrases “Touch ’em all” (for home runs) and “Oh, my!” (for particularly exciting and outstanding athletic plays). He also announced or hosted the Tournament of Roses Parade for many years, sometimes with the help of family members. Enberg retired from broadcasting in 2016.
Enberg has served as Chairman of the American Sportscasters Association since 1983. He is also a Board Member for the Lott IMPACT Trophy, which is named after Pro Football Hall of Fame defensive back Ronnie Lott and is given annually to college football’s Defensive IMPACT Player of the Year.
