Adam Amin to deliver Axthelm Memorial Lecture, April 3

The Diederich College of Communication welcomes Adam Amin of Fox Sports and the Chicago Bulls at this year’s Axthelm Memorial Lecture on Monday, April 3, at 4 p.m. in the Eisenberg Reading Room.  

Adam Amin joined FOX Sports in 2020 as a play-by-play announcer for the network’s NFL, MLB and college basketball telecasts. In addition to his current duties with the network, Amin is the primary television voice for the NBA’s Chicago Bulls on NBC Sports Chicago and was honored as the 2021 Illinois Sportscaster of the Year by the National Sports Media Association. 

Prior to FOX Sports, Amin spent nine years at ESPN where he quickly established himself as one of the most versatile broadcasters in the industry, serving as a play-by-play commentator for college football on ABC/ESPN, two Women’s Final Fours, and the NBA playoffs on ESPN and ESPN Radio (including three conference final series). A native of Addison, Illinois, Amin 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 and has since been distinguished as an Outstanding Young Alumnus. 

The Pete and Bonnie Axthelm Memorial Program was established in 1994 at Marquette to acknowledge and recognize the life of Pete Axthelm and his sister Bonnie. Every year this program awards a scholarship to an outstanding Marquette journalism student with an expressed interest in sports journalism.
