Bill Worrell
Team Announcers | CSN Houston, 29 May 2014 [cached]
One of the most familiar faces within the Houston sports scene, Bill Worrell's broadcasting career spans more than 37 years. Worrell, who won a Lone Star Emmy in 2011 for best play-by-play announcer, begins his 30th season as the play-by-play announcer for Rockets telecasts. Worrell broke into the television business in 1970 shortly after graduating from the University of Houston, where he attended on a baseball scholarship. His first assignment was with KPRC Channel 2, where he served as sports director from 1974-1980. During that time, he received six "Best Sportscaster" awards from the United Press International and the Texas Association of Broadcasters. Worrell was one of the original employees for Home Sports Entertainment, Houston's first sports cable channel. He signed the network on the air January 3, 1983, with a pre-game broadcast prior to the network's inaugural event, a Rockets home game. Worrell quickly established himself as one of Houston's most versatile sportscasters. He served as an analyst on Houston Astros telecasts from 1985-2004, and has been the TV voice of the Rockets for the past 28 seasons. He has also broadcast play-by-play for the Houston Oilers and a variety of college sports. During his career, Worrell has covered and reported on numerous national sports events, including the Super Bowl, Kentucky Derby, Indianapolis 500, Major League Baseball Playoffs and NCAA Basketball Tournaments. A civic leader as well as broadcaster, Worrell generously donates his time to numerous charities and organizations and serves as master of ceremonies for many events. He currently serves on the Board of My Friends Foundation for at risk children. In 1998, he was awarded Distinguished Alumnus of the University of Houston School of Communication.

Speaking of Rafer, I don't know what Rockets announcer Bill Worrell was on tonight.
After Rafer finally made a three-pointer, Worrell said Alston had 2 so far ... and in the final minute when Rafer hit his second in seven attempts, Worrell said Rafer was on fire with his fourth triple.

"The plan is the same: more local programming about teams that fans care about," said Bill Worrell, an original HSE employee in 1983 who will be part of CSN Houston as the Rockets' play-by-play announcer.
CSN Houston will feature a few familiar faces, including Fox Sports Houston veteran Kevin Eschenfelder, the Rockets broadcast crew of Worrell, Matt Bullard and Clyde Drexler plus the return of Calvin Murphy, and former KTBU (Channel 55) anchor Matt Doleman.
