Now the bowling fans have seen the four PBA color men for the telecasts: Marshall Holman, Randy Pedersen, Brian Voss, and yesterday, David Ozio.

I've never been a Marshall fan, and while I like to watch Randy bowl, he seemed to be a little over the top. Voss didn't impress me much, but Ozio in one telecast had me listening. He gets one more chance next week, but I'd give him the nod over the others on the one telecast already.

What are your thoughts?

I'd like to take parts of Marshall, Randy and David and put them together. Brian Voss is terrible though, I hope he's never behind the mic again. My "order" would be:

1. Randy Pedersen
2. David Ozio
3. Marshall Holman
4. Brian Voss

What would make me happiest is if Jim Kelly never brought up golf again. Earth to Jim, Earth to Jim. You're no longer hosting golf. Get over it already! :rolleyes:

I'd like to see just Ozio and Pedersen host the show. laugh

Who says there must be a "professional" announcer on the show? The professional doesn't even seem professional with his constant mentions of golf.
All the best,
Steve Mermelstein

Ozio was the best. He did the best play by play and made it really interesting.

eek surprised to hear the things about marshall. I really liked Marsh. Voss is horrible though I would agree with everyone on that. He is way to quiet and I had to turn up the set just to hear him! Randy isn't too good either. All he ever talks about is "High Flush", I must've heard him say, "that shot was HIGH FLUSH just where he wanted it!" about 50 times at least. Ozio is good, too.
The way I see it:
1.Marshall Holman (he's classic come on)
2.David Ozio
3.Randy Petersen
108.Brian Voss

The PBA's long-awaited decision on who would preside in the broadcast booth has been made. Fan favorite Randy Pederson will join announcer Jim Kelly to cover the 20 ESPN broadcasts that begin in September.

It's not surprising the PBA went with a younger color personality than Marshall. Demographics are demographics, and it's what sells advertising.

I've always enjoyed watching Randy since he did commercials out this way for a bowling supply company. Those were a tad corny, but not over the top. Perhaps Randy can settle into the role as announcer without the need for Ritalin smile

I think ESPN would benefit more my having both Randy Pedersen and Marshal Holman. Marshal could be in the booth, keeping Jim Kelley's mind on the game instead of golf, and Randu would be great doing interviews.
