Dave Ryan (sportscaster)

Dave Ryan is a play-by-play announcer and reporter for CBS. He previously worked for ESPN.,[1] and began his start in broadcasting at UUTV, now called CitrusTV, the student-run TV studio at Syracuse University.

He was born on June 20, 1967.[2] He is mostly known for calling PBA bowling events on the network alongside color analyst Randy Pedersen from 2002–2007.

He now has 4 wonderful kids. 3 girls - Amelia, Emma and Eden. And a son named Jasper. He called other non-marquee sporting events on ESPN and its sister networks, such as lacrosse and the semifinals of the Little League World Series. In addition, he occasionally serves as a college football sideline reporter and a college basketball announcer, and served as a play-by-play man for NHL on ESPN and ESPN2 for a number of years. His signature phrases on bowling telecasts were "60 feet to success!" and "He's got all ten down." Some bowling fans criticized him for calling pins by a number, such as "number seven" instead of saying "the seven pin." Ryan was replaced by Rob Stone for PBA telecasts in 2007, but he has continued to call other bowling events on occasion, such as women's tournaments and college tournaments.

Dave Ryan's name is on a fairly short list of national bowling play-by-play announcers, with Chris Schenkel being the most well known after he spent 36 years calling PBA events for ABC. Denny Schreiner (ESPN), Jay Randolph (NBC/ESPN2), Mike Durbin (ESPN), Dick Stockton (HBO) and Rob Stone (ESPN) have also served as play-by-play announcers for bowling telecasts.

Ryan joined the NFL on CBS commentary team in 2009 as a play by play man, substituting for Gus Johnson in week 16.[3]
