31 Years Televising Live Sports Events

Entering his 31st year televising live sporting events to audiences throughout Florida and the nation, Paul Kennedy anchors coverage of the NHL Tampa Bay Lightning and serves as studio host for Orlando Magic road contests for FOX Sports.

A member of the telecast teams for both franchises since their expansion seasons, Kennedy is also involved in feature writing for national broadcasts of the NFL, Major League Baseball, and the U.S. Open Golf Championship on FOX.

From 1988-2010, Kennedy called the action of Florida State football on "Prime Time Noles," a chronicle of the success achieved by coach Bobby Bowden and the tradition-rich Seminoles.


His football work includes national play-by-play for the NFL on FOX, NFL Europe, and college action for Fox Sports Net, in addition to SEC and ACC Games of the Week, while hosting shows for both the Miami Dolphins and Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Kennedy served as the "Voice of the Crimson Tide" for five seasons at the University of Alabama, prior to his arrival in Orlando.

His Major League Baseball credits include NBC and ABC networks' "Baseball Night in America" telecasts, as well as hosting and calling Florida Marlins contests.

His portfolio offers commentary assignments for professional tennis, equestrian sports, swimming, track and field, water skiing, and soccer.

A graduate of Virginia Tech, he is engaged to Joan Carroll of Winter Park, Fla.
