Mike Keith – The Voice Of The Titans

If it seems like Mike Keith has been around for a while, it’s because he has been. Between his time in Knoxville and his time in Nashville, Mike has been on the radio for every football season in Tennessee since 1987!

In 2024, Mike enters his 27th season with the Tennessee Titans, his 26th as “The Voice of the Titans”.

Describing one legendary NFL play on January 8, 2000 put him on the map. Mike accurately and enthusiastically called the play that he later dubbed as The Music City Miracle”, a last-second touchdown that gave the Tennessee Titans a playoff win over the Buffalo Bills. ESPN named Mike’s description of “The Music City Miracle” as one of the 10 Best Radio Calls in American Sports History.

With that signature call and scores more since 1999, Mike earned a spot on the “Top 100 Local Voices in the first 100 Years of Sports Broadcasting” list by Sports Broadcast Journal in 2021.

Along with being named Tennessee’s Sportscaster of the Year 11 times and winning 20+ Associated Press awards, Mike 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, Tennessee Radio Hall of Fame, TSSAA Hall of Fame, BGA Hall of Fame and University of Tennessee Baseball Hall of Fame.   

Outside of calling play-by-play on Sundays, Mike hosts multiple Titans Radio shows during game week, hosts The Mike Vrabel Show, Titans All Access and Titans Gameday television programs, and moderates the official Titans podcast known as The OTP. Mike has also called the Reese’s Senior Bowl and hosted shows on Sirius XM NFL Radio and has done play-by-play work for both ESPN and the SEC Network.

Two passions are calling Tennessee high school state championship events in various sports for the TSSAA and working with talented young broadcasters to help them develop their broadcasting craft. Teaching might have become Mike’s truest love, as he started his broadcasting career while in high school at BGA, working at WAGG-TV in Franklin. Mike likes to share with broadcasting students that he “made a ton of mistakes and had a lot of help along the way.”

Mike became the WUTK’s sports director on his third day on campus in Knoxville in 1986. Within just months of that appointment, at only 19, Mike was hired by the legendary John Ward with the Vol Radio Network. He would work in a variety of roles with the Vol Network from 1987-98, including being “The Voice of the Baseball Vols” from 1992-98. His love of college baseball is well-known, and the Titans certainly understand, having allowed ESPN to hire Mike to call NCAA Regionals in 2015, 2016 and 2018.

Mike also hosted one of Tennessee’s first daily sports talk shows from 1989-98 for WIVK/WNOX Radio in Knoxville. His four-hour show was named Tennessee’s best in five of the first six years that awards were presented in AP’s sports talk show category in 1990’s. Mike still makes weekly appearances on over ten different sports talk shows throughout the region during football season and he enjoys each one.  

Born in Knoxville and raised in Franklin, Mike and his wife, Michelle, have two children, Abby, and Matthew.

After the display of dominance that Derrick Henry has shown in the last 2 plus seasons and a 2,000-yard season in 2020, I began thinking about his career trajectory and how Henry is tracking towards a Hall of Fame Career.  With that in mind, we take Derrick Henry’s first 5 seasons in the NFL and where he is statistically vs. Franchise greats…
