That same passion and excitement emanates from the longtime "Voice of the Titans," Mike Keith, who is regarded as one of the most talented and respected announcers in the NFL. Experience is the key, as 2019 marks Keith's 21st season as the play-by-play voice of the franchise.
Once again, Keith is joined by longtime NFL coach Dave McGinnis, adding more depth to the veteran broadcast crew that makes up Titans Radio. 2019 marks a new chapter in Titans football, and Titans Radio will be there to bring you the next breathtaking moment.
Meet the Team
Tennessee Radio Hall of Famer and 11-time Tennessee Sportscaster of the Year Mike Keith has done play-by-play announcing on radio and television for a variety of sports on a variety of levels in a career that is now in its fourth decade. He's called high school, college, Arena and NFL football. He's called high school and college men's and women's basketball. He's called high school, college and professional baseball and high school wrestling.
But calling one play on a rainy Saturday in Nashville made him famous.
On January 8, 2000, Mike called one of the greatest plays in NFL history, "The Music City Miracle", a last-second touchdown that gave the Tennessee Titans an improbable playoff win over the Buffalo Bills. ESPN named Titans Radio's description of the play as one of the 10 best radio calls in American sports history.
After starting in 1999 as the second-youngest announcer in the NFL, Mike Keith is now one of the league's longest-tenured play-by-play announcers.
In addition to his play-by-play duties, Mike hosts multiple Titans Radio shows, The Mike Vrabel Show and Titans All Access television programs, and the official Tennessee Titans podcast, The OTP.
Mike also calls Tennessee state high school championship events as part of the Titans' relationship with the TSSAA, hosts shows on Sirius XM NFL Radio and has done play-by-play work for ESPN and the SEC Network. He is an in-demand emcee and speaker all over the Mid-South.
Prior to his time with the Tennessee Titans, Mike worked for the legendary John Ward with the Vol Radio Network from 1987-98. He also hosted one of Tennessee's first daily sports talk shows from 1989-98 on WIVK-AM in Knoxville and covered University of Tennessee sports for WIVK-FM and WBIR-TV.
Mike and his wife, Michelle, have two children, Abby and Matthew.
44 seasons as a football coach prepared Dave McGinnis for a job in 2017 that he never expected: Titans Radio gameday analyst.
The man known to most as "Coach Mac" proved to be a natural broadcaster. He knows football and has a special way of explaining it. With a keen ability to simplify the most complicated parts of football while making every part of the game entertaining, McGinnis became the connection for thousands of Titans Radio listeners.
Simply put, Dave McGinnis got overwhelmingly positive reviews. In 2020, he returns to Titans Radio for a fourth season as gameday analyst.
He will also have a regular role on "The Mike Vrabel Radio Show" each Monday night, will do the weekly "Beneath the Surface" feature on the region-wide television show "Titans All Access", will take part in The Official Titans Podcast (The OTP) and Titans' season ticket member events throughout the year.
But that's not all.
He will appear on Titans Radio affiliate stations during game weeks, including regular roles on Titans Radio's flagship station, 104.5 the Zone (WGFX) in Nashville. He joins Titans Radio's Rhett Bryan each Wednesday for "Mac Talk". Plus, McGinnis will join Doug Mathews and Larry Stone on the popular, statewide radio show, "Coach to Coach".
McGinnis began his NFL career in 1986, joining the defending Super Bowl Champion Chicago Bears as linebackers coach. He spent 10 seasons on the staffs of Mike Ditka and Dave Wannstedt in the Windy City.
He departed Chicago to become Vince Tobin's defensive coordinator in Arizona. He spent nearly five seasons in that role before taking over as the Cardinals' interim head coach in 2000. After being promoted to the Cardinals' top spot full-time, McGinnis remained the Arizona head coach for three seasons.
McGinnis joined Jeff Fisher in Nashville as Tennessee's linebacker coach in 2004. He would stay with the Titans for a total of eight seasons, eventually rising to the position of assistant head coach.
He would re-join Fisher with the Rams in 2012, again assuming the role of assistant head coach. McGinnis helped Fisher move the Rams from St Louis to Los Angeles in 2016.
The native of Snyder, Texas was a three-year starter as a defensive back at TCU. McGinnis began his coaching career immediately after he finished his playing career, spending 13 years as a college assistant before moving to the NFL. Between 1973-85, McGinnis served on the staffs at TCU, Missouri, Indiana State and Kansas State.
