The 2015-16 school year

will mark Tim Healey’s

43rd year in broadcasting, as well as his 18th season as the

legendary radio play-by-play voice of Arizona State University

football and men’s basketball, and 17th season as the radio

voice of ASU baseball. Healey replaced the late Tom Dillon

as the radio voice of ASU football and men’s basketball for

the 1998-99 academic year and assumed the duties of the

ASU baseball play-by-play broadcaster in the spring of 2000.

Healey’s 200th Sun Devil football radio broadcast was

marked by the October 4, 2014 ASU football game at USC,

known best for the game ending ‘Jael Mary’ touchdown pass

from Mike Bercovici to Jaelen Strong, giving ASU a 38-34

win over the Trojans. Coach Todd Graham later presented

Healey with a game ball to commemorate the milestone and

the win. As Healey enters the 2015 season, his log stands at

208 Sun Devil football radio broadcasts and counting.

Healey spent 26 years (1973-99) in TV News & Sports,

working as an anchor/ reporter at six different television

stations around the country, including three and a half years

(1983-87) as sports director of Channel 10 in Phoenix and

11 years (1988-99) at Channel 3.

Healey is a native of Washington, D.C. and a 1973 graduate

(Magna Cum Laude) of Penn State University (B.A. Speech/

Broadcasting). He has been married to his wife Margie for

41 years and together they have two children, Katie (36)

and Joe (33).
