Timeline

2018

In 2018, Gannon told sports reporter Helen Ross that out of all the sports he has called, he found golf the hardest, even though he played it and had been a fan of the sport since childhood. He played golf in clubs near his home in Los Angeles, but most of his golf was played on the road, with former golf pros and fellow broadcasters like his Golf Channel broadcast partner, six-time major champion Nick Faldo, as well as with Craig Perks, Billy Kratzert, Matt Gogel, Jim Gallagher Jr., and Curt Byrum.

In 2018, Gannon, Lipinski, and Weir announced figure skating and the Closing Ceremony at the Winter Olympics in PyeongChang, South Korea. Gannon also called ice dancing with former ice dancer Tanith White.

2014

In 2014, Gannon was enlisted as a play-by-play commentator for figure skating at the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi, Russia. NBC needed backup announcers for their daytime broadcasts of figure skating, and so at first, he was slotted to work with 1998 Olympic champion Tara Lipinski and three-time U.S. national champion Johnny Weir separately. The trio recognized their chemistry and requested that they call the competition together; the result was the 10 best weekday daytime ratings in NBC's history. They were promoted to the network's lead figure skating announcing team the following season. Lipinski and Weir reported that Gannon "upped his game" with his wardrobe after working with them. Lipinski called Gannon "dapper" and "stylish"; she and Weir reported that they had helped Gannon with accessories such as cuff links and Hermès pocket squares. In 2017, Gannon signed a five-year contract extension with NBC and the Golf Channel.

2010

In 2010, Gannon joined the broadcast team of the Golf Channel, which is owned by the NBC Sports Group. NBC Sports called him one of their "most versatile voices". He served as play-by-play announcer on the PGA Tour, the LPGA Tour, Olympic figure skating and gymnastics, and college basketball. He has covered five Olympic Games, including serving as studio host and play-by-play commentator for figure skating, short track, rowing, canoeing, and golf.

1993

In 1993, Gannon began broadcasting for ESPN and ABC (which was merged with ESPN), covering play-by-play coverage for college basketball and football; by 2001, he had covered three post-season bowl games. He was an announcer on ABC's coverage of the PGA Tour and the Champions Tour. He announced the Tour de France, which Jacobs called "perhaps his greatest challenge", three times. In 2001, ABC reported that Gannon hosted the Belmont Stakes once, and three times called the play-by-play at the Little League World Series. By the time he left ABC, Gannon had also covered the NBA, WNBA, horse racing, tennis, beach volleyball, skiing, supercross motorcycle racing, mountain biking, and golf. He announced for the 2002 FIFA World Cup, the 2003 FIFA Women's World Cup, WTA professional tennis, the 2004 Indianapolis 500, 2006 Belmont Stakes, the Special Olympics, the Goodwill Games, and hosted ABC’s college football studio show. For six years, he hosted the Tournament of Roses Parade.

1991

In 1991, Gannon started working for ABC as a commentator for college basketball. He also was an announcer on the weekly show Wide World of Sports. While working at Wide World of Sports, Gannon said that his biggest broadcasting influences were Harry Caray and Al Michaels.

1990

Starting in the early 1990s, after being asked to travel to Tokyo, Japan, to cover a professional figure skating event, Gannon served as host for ABC's figure skating coverage, teaming with former Olympic skaters Peggy Fleming and Dick Button at most major competitions. As sports reporter Barry Jacobs stated, figure skating was "a sport he had not followed", but like every new sport, he approached it with "scholarly zeal" and "as if it was a history project". He would learn a sport's rules, key figures from its past and present, and for the purpose of sounding authentic to its fans, its "idiosyncratic language". Gannon told reporter Barry Wilner that he would also talk about what he knew about the new sport and avoid unfamiliar topics until he learned more about it. Eventually, although he was most closely associated with figure skating and golf, with what Jacobs called "his warm, authoritative voice and understated manner", Gannon announced for a wide variety of sporting events and has been called one of the "most versatile" announcers in TV sports and "the man who knows every game".

1986

In 1986, Gannon began broadcasting on Valvano's TV and radio shows for regionally televised basketball games. He served as a regular college basketball game analyst for Raycom Sports, Prime Network, Jefferson-Pilot Sports, Sports South, and Home Team Sports between 1987 and 1994, and as a play-by-play announcer for Prime Sports and Jefferson-Pilot's coverage of college baseball. Gannon credits Valvano for his career, noting that the coach had told his players that basketball "shouldn't be your entire life, it shouldn't consume you". From 1990 to 1994, Gannon was the announcer for the Charlotte Knights, a Minor League Baseball team in Charlotte.

1985

After graduating with a degree in history from NC State in 1985, he worked as a graduate assistant for Valvano for a year, intending to become a basketball coach. He briefly played professional basketball in Europe, but on the advice of Valvano, left the sport for broadcasting. In 2018, on the 35th anniversary of their win, NC State inducted the entire 1983 men's basketball team into its Athletic Hall of Fame.

In 1983, he was a part of the "Cardiac Pack", which upset the Houston Cougars for the NCAA title. In 1983, Gannon was the leading three-point shooter in the United States.
