Bob Miller to Receive Lifetime Achievement Award

Los Angeles Kings Hall of Fame announcer Bob Miller will be honored with the Lifetime Achievement award during the 13th Annual LA Sports Awards. The event will be held on Tuesday, February 6, 2018, at The Beverly Hilton.

Miller was the television play-by-play "Voice of the Kings" for nearly 44 years, calling 3,353 Kings' broadcasts before retiring at the end of last season.

He was behind the microphone during some of hockey's most iconic moments, including the "Miracle on Manchester," Wayne Gretzky setting the all-time goal scoring record, and the Kings' Stanley Cup victories in 2012 and 2014.

"In recognition of his Hall of Fame career, including more than four decades with the Kings, Bob was a unanimous choice for this year's Lifetime Achievement award," said L.A. Sports Council President David Simon.

Among Miller's many accolades are a plaque in the Hockey Hall of Fame and a star on the famous Hollywood Walk of Fame. The press box at Staples Center is named in his honor, and later this season he will be immortalized with the unveiling of a statue at the Star Plaza outside the arena. Bob currently serves as a Kings Team Ambassador.

Miller is the third Lifetime Achievement award recipient, joining Vin Scully (2015) and Peter Ueberroth (2016).

The Los Angeles Sports Council is a non-profit civic organization whose primary purpose is to promote economic development through sports in the Los Angeles/Orange County area.

On behalf of the community, the Sports Council bids against other cities for the right to host major sporting events, often staging or helping to stage events after successful bids.

Founded in 1988, the Sports Council's efforts represent more than $1 billion in overall economic impact for the region and range from NCAA Championships to the Super Bowl, and from the U.S Olympic Trials to the World Cup.

The Council also works in support of each of the area's established sports teams and facilities.
