Adam Amin is one of sports media's youngest and most versatile play-by-play broadcasters. Calling a multitude of sports and events across multiple mediums, Adam has been a play-by-play commentator for ESPN since joining the company in 2011 at age 24, immediately becoming one of television's youngest ever game-callers. He currently serves as the voice of ESPN's College Football Friday Primetime series, a play-by-play commentator for ESPN's coverage of the NBA, Major League Baseball, and college basketball, and has been on game and hosting duties for the Women's College World Series, NCAA Wrestling Championships, the McDonald's High School All-American Games, and NCAA tournament coverage of volleyball and baseball.

Adam adds a full slate of MLB and NBA broadcasts for ESPN Radio to his portfolio and, in 2016, assumed the role of lead voice on NFL games for “Football Sunday on ESPN Radio.” From 2012-2015, Adam provided play-by-play for Sports USA Radio on NFL and select college football broadcasts. In 2013, he was on the mic for Peyton Manning's record-setting 51st touchdown pass as well as Auburn's incredible last-second “Kick Six” victory versus Alabama in the Iron Bowl. He holds the distinction of being the youngest play-by-play announcer to ever call a New Year's Six Bowl Game after working on ESPN Radio's coverage of the 2016 Fiesta Bowl.

Adam was named one of sports media's 10 rising stars in 2015 and his voice has also been featured in commercial advertisements for Sprint, British Airways, and Comcast.

From 2007-11, he handled play-by-play, hosting and reporting tasks for Turner Sports Digital/NCAA Productions, FOX Sports Wisconsin, the Illinois High School Association and the Horizon League Network. Before joining ESPN, Amin had stops in Gary, Ind. and Somerset, NJ calling minor league baseball, was a studio host for football and basketball broadcasts at Valparaiso University, and served a stint as Sports Director at KUOO Radio in Spirit Lake, Iowa.

A native of Addison, Ill., Adam graduated with a degree in television and radio from Valparaiso University where he was twice named Indiana Collegiate Sportscaster of the Year by the state association of broadcasters. In 2009, he was a finalist for the Jim Nantz Award and honored as one of the top five collegiate sportscasters in America. He currently resides in Chicago, Ill.
