Mark Followill is an American sports announcer. He is the primary television play-by-play voice for Dallas Mavericks and FC Dallas. He had previously been the radio play-by-play voice for the Mavericks on 103.3 ESPN Radio.[1] In 2012, he began calling FC Dallas games except when they conflicted with his responsibilities with the Mavericks. His work with FC Dallas gained the attention of Fox Sports, who named him as one of their announcers for Copa America Centenario.[2] Later that summer, he was named as one of the announcers for NBC's coverage of soccer at the 2016 Summer Olympics.[3] He also announces play-by-play action for college football telecasts on FSN. Earlier in his career, he was the play-by-play announcer for the SMU football team.

Twice in his career he has won the Texas Associated Press Award for the best play-by-play broadcast in 2004 and 2005.[citation needed] He won the Katie Award for Best Play-by-Play Sportscast in 2002.[citation needed]
