See Brando’s rankings this week (below)
Here is  some info on this weekend’s broadcasters.
  • Sixers hire Kate Scott to be play-by-play announcer, she succeeds Marc Zumoff who retired after last season | PhillyVoiceKate Scott (left) who succeeded the retired Marc Zumoff on Philly Sixers TV is assigned to a college football radio broadcast. She’ll work NC State at Wake Forest with Mike Golic.
  • ESPNer Jay Alter, a Syracuse man  has done some media work in Connecticut.
  • Dave Ryan in his mid 50s is another SUer. He gets steady work, mostly with CBS Sports Network. Not all make it big, but Ryan is visible most football weekends. He also does lacrosse for CBS.
  • Matt Schick is an occasional ESPNer who was born and raised in Rochester, New York. Top of mind, three other voices from the upstate town, pioneer broadcaster Bill Stern, the late Pete Van Wieren and veteran broadcaster, Josh Lewin.
  • ESPN’s Chris Fowler, former SI exquisite scribe Rick Reilly and Jim Gray all attended Colorado University.
  • Clay Matvick, ESPNer since 2006 is a former CNN anchor. He’s from the Upper Midwest.
  • A little more, behind the faces: You hear Jason Horowitz on Westwood One and see him on CBS Sports Network. Jason is not to be confused with the New York Times’ Rome, Italy, bureau chief by the same name.
  • Dan Hellie of Fox and the NFL Network was born in the Philippines when his parents were in the Peace Corps. Dan attended the University of Tennessee.
  • Eric Collins who has West Virginia at Kansas State this Saturday is from Cleveland. He had a tryout in the Dodgers booth when Vin Scully was cutting back late in his career. His successor Joe Davis made the cut and does a subdued job. Collins’ screaming sends his listeners to their local ENTs.
  • Kevin Brown has Tulsa at Tulane, This fellow is good. Also does the Orioles on radio, while as I understand it, commutes from New York.
  • Ted Robinson still chugging alone. One time NBCer is one of the regulars for the Pac12 Network.

When Collins did the Dodgers, he screamed, and his color man was Steve Lyons, whose approach was to be as goofy as possible. I’m reminded that Collins was the first one I heard saying of a line drive dropping into the outfield, “That ball will get DOWN.” I didn’t like it then and I don’t like it now.

Unlike Vin, Davis has a color man–and Orel Hershiser is a good one–but does a lot more anecdotal stuff than he does on network TV.
