Dan Roberts is an American public address announcer best known for his work for the Utah Jazz of the National Basketball Association. He has held this position since 1979, the entirety of the team's stay in Utah.[1]

Throughout each Utah Jazz game, Roberts is known to address the EnergySolutions Arena crowd by asking, "How 'bout this jazz?".[1] His favorite Jazz basketball player is Karl Malone, whose baskets he announced by saying, "The Mailman delivers!"

Dan's son, Jeremy, is also an announcer for the Utah Flash of the NBDL. He fills in for Dan on the few occasions he misses a game; to date Dan has missed fewer than 10 games in 35 years as the Jazz announcer.

Before joining the Jazz, Roberts was the public address announcer for Utah Utes men's basketball. He called the 1979 national championship game featuring Larry Bird and Magic Johnson.
