Veteran sportscaster Kevin Harlan's first job as the radio and television voice of the NBA's Kansas City Kings.

Kevin Harland will top his own record for most consecutive Super Bowls called during this year's contest between the Kansas City Chiefs and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

It takes a lot of preparation to be able to draw a verbal picture on the radio for sports fans yet Kevin Harlan makes it sound easy. Even so, the University of Kansas graduate still manages to have fun whether it's calling two games at once or a black cat running down the field.
