Kenny Albert is an American sportscaster, the son of sportscaster Marv Albert and the nephew of sportscasters Al Albert and Steve Albert. He is the only sportscaster who currently does play-by-play for all four major professional sports leagues in the United States and Canada (NFL, NBA, MLB, NHL).
On his sixth birthday in 1974 his father took him along to a New York Rangers game. One of the statisticians had to leave in the middle of the game so Kenny got to do the stats for the rest of the game. At 14, he became the official statistician for the New York Rangers on the radio. At 16, he wrote content for the New York Rangers program. Aside from his father, his idol was Vancouver Canucks play-by-play broadcaster Jim Robson.
From 1981 to 1986, Kenny, growing up in Sands Point, covered high school sports for the Port Washington News, an Anton Community Newspapers publication.
He graduated from New York University in 1990 with a degree in broadcasting and journalism. Albert worked in the sports department at WNYU Radio. He is a frequent guest on WNYU's sports talk program, The Cheap Seats.
Kenny is the radio voice of the New York Rangers, as well as a play-by-play announcer and field-level reporter for Fox's coverage of Major League Baseball, the NFL, and the Sugar Bowl. When Fox had the network contract for the National Hockey League in the 1990s, Albert also worked on Fox NHL Saturday telecasts. Albert also worked play-by-play for the NHL on NBC and formerly with Versus.
He has done work for NBC's Olympics coverage, as a play-by-play announcer for men's and women's ice hockey at the 2002 Winter Olympics in Salt Lake City, the 2006 Winter Olympics in Turin, Italy, the 2010 Winter Olympics in Vancouver, and the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi.
