KINGS TELEVISION/RADIO PLAY-BY-PLAY ANNOUNCER 1972-73
Roy Storey spent one season (1972-73) as the Kings television/radio play-by-play announcer. He was in the Kings broadcast booth in between the first play-by-play announcer in Kings history, Jiggs McDonald and the "Voice of the Kings" Bob Miller.
A native of Grand Rapids, Minn., Storey formerly served as the California Golden Seals voice in 1970 where he became known for his ferocious call "shot on goal!!" In 1971, he was sports director of KYA in San Francisco when the Seals did not broadcast their games.
Storey's long career included stints behind the microphone for major league baseball on KYA 1260 and for one of the earliest sports-talk programs in the mid-1950s on Oakland’s KLX. Storey was also the color and play-by-play voice of the San Francisco 49ers alongside Bob Fouts, the Western Hockey League Seals alongside Don Klein and eventually the NHL's Oakland Seals.
He also served as the radio announcer for hockey games at the 1960 Winter Olympics at Squaw Valley and was the voice of Saint Mary’s College basketball for many years. In addition, he was a news anchor at 1260/KYA in the 1970s.
In 2008, Storey was inducted into the Bay Area Radio Hall of Fame.
