Ken Daniels, longtime play-by-play announcer for FOX Sports Detroit’s coverage of the Detroit Red Wings, has been recognized as Michigan Sportscaster of the Year for 2010 by the National Sportscasters and Sportswriters Association (NSSA). It is the second such honor for Daniels, who also earned the NSSA award in 2003.
Daniels, in his 14th season with FOX Sports Detroit, is among the 110 state sportscasters and sportswriters from 49 states and the District of Columbia to be honored during the NSSA’s 52nd Annual Awards Weekend, May 14-16 at the organization’s headquarters in Salisbury, North Carolina.
In addition to the state award winners, the NSAA will recognize its 2011 Hall of Fame inductees Brent Musburger, Bob Uecker and Bob Ryan, as well as 2010 National Sportscaster of the Year Mike Tirico and National Sportswriter of the Year Peter King.
The NSSA was founded in 1959 as a way to honor the nation’s sportscaster and sportswriters for their craft.
