37. Aaaaaand now! Sacramento Kings' PA announcer Scott Moak!

Public Address announcers at sports events inform the audience, engage fans, cheer on the home team, and amp up the crowd. It's a fine balance since they have to do all these things while not being more memorable than the game itself. Meet Scott Moak, long-time Public Address announcer for the NBA's Sacramento Kings. Find out about the Sacramento native's journey as a kid cheering on his hometown team from Section 213 to his 20-year career as the King's PA announcer. Scott tells us about his time as a UC Davis student on the sports crew at the campus radio station, his work in child welfare helping youth in foster care, his advice to aspiring sports announcers, his experience as an NBA announcer, and what fans should expect from the Kings this season.
