Eddie Doucette

Eddie Doucette is a former television and radio sportscaster and currently the president of Doucette Promotions Inc.

Doucette was the original radio play-by-play voice of the Milwaukee Bucks, where he broadcast games for 16 years.[1] During his career he also called games for various other NBA teams (including the Indiana Pacers, Denver Nuggets, Los Angeles Clippers and Portland Trail Blazers), for Major League Baseball teams (including the San Diego Padres, Cleveland Indians, Houston Astros, Los Angeles Dodgers and Milwaukee Brewers), and for the WFL's Chicago Fire;[2] and he has done various other sports including NFL football, college football, college basketball, PGA Tour golf, boxing and track and field events.[3][4]

Along with Jon McGlocklin, Doucette co-founded the MACC Fund in 1976 after his two-year old son, Brett, was diagnosed with cancer.[4] Today, he serves as the fund's honorary vice-president.[3]

He is a graduate of Michigan State University. He resides in Poway, California with his wife Karen. They have two grown sons: Brett and Cory.[3]

The Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame has announced that Doucette will receive the Curt Gowdy Media Award in the Electronic Media category during the 2013 Hall of Fame induction ceremony in September.[1] He was inducted into the Wisconsin Broadcasters Association Hall of Fame in 2011.[5]
