Gary Gerould is an American sportscaster, best known as the radio voice of the NBA's Sacramento Kings since 1985.

Gerould was born in Midland, Michigan and got his start in broadcasting at the age of 15 on a local telegraph station.[1] He later attended Anderson University in Indiana and upon graduation went to Chico, California work for KHSL Radio, later moving to KCRA-AM and KCRA TV, as a sports reporter before finally coming to NBC and ESPN, specializing in coverage of the motorsports. He also called play-by-play for NBC's NFL coverage in the early 1980s, and had the opportunity to cover the 1988 Summer Olympics for the network.[1]

In 1985 as the Kansas City Kings moved to Sacramento, Gerould was tabbed as their radio play-by-play announcer. During the 2004 NBA Playoffs Gerould completed his 1500th Kings broadcast, ranking him in the top-10 of active NBA announcers.[2]

In the 1980's and 1990's, he also worked for the motorsports program American Sports Cavalcade.

Gerould continues to serve as the Kings' play-by-play voice, and has previously worked with ESPN and ABC Sports serving as a pit reporter for Indy Racing League and CART/Champ Car (now defunct) races, including the Indianapolis 500. He currently does reporting coverage of the NHRA series for ESPN and runs his own public relations outfit. His son Bob is also a sports broadcaster.[2]
