Hawks' Holman nears 2,000th consecutive broadcast
ATLANTA (AP) — Atlanta Hawks radio play-by-play announcer Steve Holman is approaching a milestone in his run as the NBA's iron man of broadcasting.
The 58-year-old Holman will call his 2,000th consecutive game when the Hawks play the Brooklyn Nets on Wednesday night in Atlanta. The streak, which includes the regular season and playoffs, is the longest of any NBA announcer in radio or television.
Holman has called every game since beginning his streak in March, 1989. He is in his 28th season calling games for the Hawks.
He was inducted into the Georgia Radio Hall of Fame in 2011.
