BOB MILLER – SPORTS ANNOUNCER, LA KINGS
Filmmaker Charlie Minn who has sold movies to "Lions Gate" and "Investigation Discovery" brings Kings and NHL fans the story behind one of the most popular hockey broadcasters the game has ever seen."
Bob Miller grew up in the Midwest (Chicago), but for the last last forty years he has been in Los Angeles, thrilling Kings fans with an accurate, honest, no-schtick "play-by-play" call. Miller started with the Kings in 1973 after being discovered by the great Chick Hearn. How many sports announcers can say they made it to the two fames? Miller is in the Hall of Fame for broadcasting and has a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. He has called two Stanley Cup championships for the Kings and is the most popular hockey announcer in the history of Los Angeles, if not the National Hockey League. Filmmaker Charlie Minn interviews the people closest to Miller, recounts his most memorable calls and allows Miller to do what he does best, tell a story. The ending of the film will show you a part of Miller perhaps nobody knows.
