SAN JOSE, California
– San Jose Sharks Radio play-by-play announcer Dan Rusanowsky has been nominated for the Bay Area Radio Hall of Fame’s Class of 2013. Each year, the California Historical Radio Society and the Bay Area Radio Museum & Hall of Fame honor the best radio broadcasters around the Bay Area.
Rusanowsky has served as the play-by-play announcer for the San Jose Sharks since the team’s inception in 1991. He has broadcast every Sharks regular season and playoff game in franchise history, with the exception of 27 games he missed in the 2001-01 season after being involved in a serious auto accident.
Rusanowsky is responsible for producing all San Jose Sharks radio broadcasts, directs and administers the multi-station Sharks Radio Network (which provides coverage of all games for hockey fans in Northern California and parts of Nevada and Oregon) and oversees the relationship with flagship station KFOX 98.5/102.1 FM.
In addition, Rusanowsky has provided the play-by-play call on several Major League Soccer radio broadcasts and A-League “digicasts.” He has served as a guest host on KNBR 680 and 1050 AM, as well as the nationally syndicated “Sports Byline USA/Sports Overnight America” programs. He has brought his voice to radio and television commercials, Atari video games, feature films and corporate video programs over the years. A motor racing enthusiast, he also appears on Comcast SportsNet’s “Race Week” television program.
Outside the rink, Rusanowsky is a devoted member of the Bay Area community, making numerous public speaking and charitable appearances.
