Jim Paschke

Jim Paschke is an American sportscaster. A native of Bloomington, Minnesota, he began his broadcasting career in radio in Knoxville, Iowa, after studying at the University of Minnesota and Brown Institute, in Minneapolis. He has handled play-by-play duties for a wide array of sports at all levels, but is most recognized for his work as the Milwaukee Brewers television announcer (1987–91, 1995–96), Big Ten football announcer and is currently the television voice of the Milwaukee Bucks (1986–present). Paschke and his television partner, Jon McGlocklin, are one of the longest-tenured broadcasting teams in the NBA.

On April 15, 1987, television viewers and Milwaukee Brewers fans heard Paschke call the only no-hitter in franchise history.

He is a four-time regional-Emmy Award winner. In October 2007, Paschke was inducted into the Wisconsin Basketball Coaches Association Hall of Fame as a "Friend of Basketball."

Paschke is the author of Paschketball, a video blog featured on the Milwaukee Bucks' website. "Paschketball" was coined by a young Bucks fan, Matt Gritzmacher.
