Best Sportscaster

Mike Barnes

That's right folks – he's done it again. After a brief dethroning by Fox 7's Dave Cody in last year's poll, he's baaack. The UT alum affectionately known for his Spanish soccer-announcer-style, "K-VeeYooo 20-Fooooour Sports," Barnes has been providing our nightly play-by-plays since 1989, with no intentions of quitting anytime soon. Expect to see him here in this category again. Though Cody and his legion of fans may have something to say about that: These two run neck-and-neck just about every year.
