Michael Gorman (born November 24, 1945 in Dorchester) is an American television play-by-play commentator for the Boston Celtics on NBC Sports Boston. Gorman also did play-by-play, alongside Fran Fraschilla, for NBC for basketball games during the 2016 Summer Olympics.

Career[edit]

An aviator for the United States Navy (1970-1975), Gorman began his broadcasting career at WNBH in New Bedford and WPRO in Providence. There, he also served as sports director at WPRI, as the voice of the University of Rhode Island on WPRO, and as television play-by-play commentator for the Providence College.

In the 1980s, Gorman was the primary announcer for ESPN's "Big Monday" Big East Game of the Week. He has called the NCAA basketball tournament on CBS; tennis at the 1992 Barcelona Summer Olympics with Bud Collins on NBC; the NBA Playoffs on TBS, Handball at the 2012 Summer Olympics in London, and Men's Basketball at the 2016 Summer Olympics in Rio de Janeiro.

Gorman and color commentator Tom Heinsohn form one of the longest-tenured broadcast tandems in professional sports. They have been broadcasting Celtics games for over thirty years.

A five-time Emmy award winner, Gorman was inducted into the New England Basketball Hall of Fame in 2004.[2]
