As Mrs. Buck mentioned, Joe and his late father Jack are now the first father-son combo to be enshrined in the Hall of Fame. They’re also the first father and son to win the Pete Rozelle Award, which is given to one person annually “for longtime exceptional contributions to radio and television in professional football.”
Buck said he was “blown away” by the news on Thursday. His reaction was captured during the live broadcast. You can see the video here.
Buck, 51, has been an NFL play-by-play announcer for FOX since 1994 and became their top play-by-play announcer in 2002.
