    Al Michaels
    Al Michaels, one of television's most respected journalists, has covered more major sports events than any sportscaster since joining ABC Sports in 1976. He has been widely acclaimed for his knowledgeable and insightful reporting in his primary assignment for ABC Sports: As play-by-play announcer for ABC's NFL "Monday Night Football," the most successful sports series in television history. In 1998, he was inducted into the National Sportscasters and Sportswriters Association Hall of Fame. His most famous broadcast may have been in 1980 when he pronounced, "Do you believe in miracles" when the United States hockey team defeated the USSR in the Olympics. But Michaels' work also transcends sport; in 1989, the Arizona State University graduate received a News Emmy nomination for his coverage of the San Francisco earthquake during the World Series.

    John Madden
    John Madden joins ABC Sports after spending the last 21 years as a NFL game analyst for Fox and CBS where he garnered 13 Emmy Awards for outstanding sports personality/analyst. Prior to his announcing days, Madden registered a 103-32-7 record as the head coach of the Oakland Raiders from 1969-1978 and led the Raiders to victory in Super Bowl XI. Madden currently has the best winning percentage (.750) of any head coach in NFL history.

    Lisa Guerrero
    Lisa Guerrero, whom the Los Angeles Times has referred to as "the hardest working person in sports," has joined ABC Sports as the sideline reporter for ABC's NFL "Monday Night Football." Guerrero, whom Hispanic Business Magazine named as one of the 100 Most Influential Hispanics, has had a wide array of experiences in the sports broadcasting business.
