The Voice of the Raptors
In 2008, Matt Devlin joined the Toronto Raptors as the club's television play-by-play voice.
Considered one of the top young broadcasters in the industry, Devlin has also called National Football League and Major League Baseball contests, WNBA and college basketball, football and baseball games.
Devlin was the first television announcer in Bobcats history, handling the duties for the NBA's newest expansion franchise for three seasons (2004-07). His NBA team-broadcasting career began in 2001 when he served three seasons as the television play-by-play voice of the Grizzlies. He called the team's record 50-win season and first playoff appearance in 2004.
Devlin also worked with the NBA and its national television partners, serving as a play-by-play announcer and sideline reporter for TNT's national coverage. He has been a broadcaster for NBA TV since the league launched its network in October 1999, working as a studio host and play-by-play voice on game broadcasts of the regular season, playoffs, summer leagues and the WNBA.
Matt Devlin has also worked with NBC, broadcasting wrestling from the Olympic Games in Beijing, China. Previously he handled the play-by-play duties for track and field and diving for the network's high definition Olympic telecasts in 2004 from Athens, Greece.
Community involvement is a priority for Devlin. He currently serves on the board of Dore Academy, Charlotte's first school for children with learning disabilities. He has been active in the NBA's Read to Achieve literacy program, and is a frequent guest speaker at schools on this subject. Devlin is a 1990 graduate of Boston College.
