- Radio Play-By-Play Announcer
Veteran NBA radio/TV announcer Mike Inglis enters his 22nd season as the HEAT’s English-language radio voice where he calls every preseason, regular season and postseason HEAT game.
In his 26th season broadcasting NBA games, Inglis’ extensive experience includes two stints in the NBA prior to joining the HEAT. He began his NBA broadcasting career during the 1987-88 season calling Indiana Pacers games and then was hired as the first radio play-by-play announcer of the Toronto Raptors in 1995, where he broadcasted simulcast games on TV and radio. He also called all the action of the HEAT’s sister team, the Miami SOL in each of their three seasons.
Subsequent to his Pacers stint, Inglis remained with WIBC Radio in Indianapolis, serving as a sportscaster and morning show co-host and announcer on broadcasts of the NFL’s Indianapolis Colts and the IHL’s Indianapolis Ice on TV.
Inglis went to Canada in 1993, to become the first morning host on the country’s inaugural sports talk radio station, Toronto’s “The FAN” Sports Radio. Inglis also called games for the NFL American Bowl, Canadian Football League, American Hockey League TV Game of the Week, North American Soccer League and the Ontario Hockey League.
Inglis and his wife, Maryellen, reside in South Florida.
