Match-by-game commentator Joe Buck won the special honor before Christmas Day.

For a work published on Monday, Andrew Marchand of the New York Post ranked Buck #1 on the “25 Most Powerful People in Sports Media for 2022.”

“Bucket move from Fox Sports to ESPN, and in the process got almost double the money (from $9 million to $15 million per year) for half the job (no more baseball, just the NFL),” Marchand famously said. more in the same way that it supported Al Michaels with a less-than-more approach in the second half of his career.”

It’s a have learned This past March, Buck will join longtime NFL partner Troy Aikman by switching from Fox to ESPN. As noted by GAME website, Buck made his NFL debut for Fox in 1994, and CNN pointed out that he was first teamed up with Aikman in May 2002. Those two are now the voices of the main broadcast “Monday Night Football” which airs on ESPN and sometimes on ABC.

Fox Sports CEO Eric Shanks ranks second on Marchand’s list after that company broadcasts the World Series, FIFA World Cup and NFL this fall.
