“The Voice of the Titans”, Mike Keith, enters his 26th season with the franchise. He is one of the NFL’s longest-tenured play-by-play voices AND YET is still one of the ten youngest among the 32 team announcers!
Mike has named one of the “Top 100 Local Voices” in the first 100 Years of American Sports Broadcasting by Sports Broadcast Journal. That same publication also named Mike as one of “The NFL’s Top 12 Radio Voices”.
Even before those accolades, Mike was already one of the NFL’s most-honored announcers. He has been named Tennessee’s Sportscaster of the Year 11 times, has won 20+ Associated Press awards and owns a 1997 Edward R. Murrow Award for nationwide excellence in reporting. Mike is a member of five Halls of Fame, including the Tennessee Sports Hall of Fame.
Describing one legendary NFL play on January 8, 2000 made him famous. That day, Mike accurately and enthusiastically called “The Music City Miracle”, a last-second touchdown that gave the Tennessee Titans a playoff win over the Buffalo Bills.
ESPN named Titans Radio’s description of “The Music City Miracle” as one of the ten best radio calls in American sports history.
As the Titans’ Vice President of Broadcasting, Mike has a variety of duties outside of calling the games on Titans Radio each weekend. He hosts multiple Titans Radio and Titans television shows during the week and moderates the official Titans podcast known as “The OTP”.
After starting his broadcast career at WAGG-TV in Franklin at age 17, Mike worked for the legendary John Ward with the Vol Radio Network from 1987-98. He also hosted one of Tennessee’s first daily sports talk shows from 1989-98 while working for WIVK/WNOX Radio in Knoxville and covered University of Tennessee sports for WBIR-TV.
A native Tennessean, Mike was born in Knoxville and raised in Franklin. Mike and his wife, Michelle, have two children, Abby, and Matthew, and two golden retrievers, “Major” and “Molly”.
