Best Sports Broadcast Personality 

Darren Pang

Holy jumpin'! Darren Pang — he of Canadian heritage, Blackhawks lineage and Steve Yzerman friendship — is well on his way to becoming a beloved St. Louis sportscaster. Since joining FOX Sports Midwest as a Blues color commentator in 2009, the man has turned down full-time gigs from national networks and established himself as the most quotable sports personality this side of the Cardinals radio broadcast booth. Panger may never be able to match Mike Shannon's rambling story-time prowess (a sometimes-monotonous 162-game season will do that to a man), but a propensity for ecstatic squeals and descriptive hyperbole have quickly endeared him to Blues fans everywhere. Ricardo's Italian Café in Lafayette Square already has named a dish after Panger — a few more years of loyalty, and the little guy might even have a fighting chance in our readers' poll.
