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).
sales manager Jeff Van
Raaphorst joined the Sun Devil radio broadcast booth in

back. He earned his B.S. in 1987, his MBA in 1997 and was
the Rose Bowl MVP in 1987 as ASU beat Michigan 22-15. He
attended Grossmont High School in La Mesa, Calif., and was
inducted into the Rose Bowl Hall of Fame in 2006. He led
ASU to a 10-1-1 record in 1986 and was 16-of-30 for 193
years and two touchdowns in the Rose Bowl.
