By the end of the 1960s, Enberg was calling California Angels games, a position he held from 1968-78. He also called games of the Los Angeles Rams and UCLA men’s basketball team and joined NBC Sports in 1975, remaining with the network for 25 years while working assignments that included the MLB Postseason and World Series as well as Wimbledon, college football and the National Football League.  Enberg called the memorable 1982 World Series featuring the Cardinals and the Brewers, and later returned to the Angels’ broadcast team in 1985. After moving to CBS Sports in 2000, Enberg covered events including football, tennis, basketball and golf before joining the Padres as their television play-by-play voice in 2010, a position he just retired from this past year.
The many accolades Enberg has received for his work include 14 Emmy awards, nine Sportscaster of the Year awards, the Ronald Reagan Media Award, and the Victor Award, recognizing the top sportscaster of the past 40 years.  He has a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame and has been inducted into the National Sports Broadcasting Hall of Fame and the National Sportscaster and Sportswriters Hall of Fame, as well as honored in the National Baseball Hall of Fame (Frick Award), Pro Football Hall of Fame (Rozelle Award), the National Basketball Hall of Fame (Gowdy Award) and the Rose Bowl Hall of Fame.
