NEW YORK (AP) — Sports commentator Kenny Albert will cover a lot of territory in a memoir slated for next year.
Albert, who has worked on everything from the Stanley Cup Finals and New York Knicks games to the Super Bowl and the Olympics, has a deal with Triumph Books for “A Mic for All Seasons.” Son of sportscaster Marv Albert and nephew of sportscasters Al Albert and Steve Albert, Kenny Albert will trace his rise from recording himself as a child calling fictional games to his prolific professional career.
He’s a longtime presence on Fox for Major League Baseball and NFL games, and is known to hockey fans as the radio voice of the New York Rangers.
“I’ve been considering writing a book for some time,” Albert said in a statement Thursday. “There are so many stories stored in my head after more than three decades of sporting events; anecdotes about actual games, broadcast partners, travelogues, funny moments, etc. My family pushes me to I have been doing this for several years. At the start of the pandemic, when I was home for 146 straight days, I finally started to put pen to paper.
Among Albert’s accomplishments: Working four different sports in four days in 2009, including a Minnesota Vikings-Pittsburgh Steelers game and the New York Yankees celebrating after winning the American League pennant.
