Scott Moore: Living the Dream, Celebrating 1,000 play-by-play calls for the Spartan Sports Network

Mar 20, 2018

MSU alumnus Scott Moore is the voice of Michigan State University hockey and baseball for the Spartan Sports Network. This past hockey season, Moore called his 1,000th game for SSN.

“It’s been a dream come true, and it’s been a joy for me to be able to do this,” says Moore. “I tell people that if you love what you do, you never work a day in your life. And I have yet to work in the last 26 years.”


Moore reviews the team’s progress during the 2017/2018 Spartan Hockey season and looks ahead to next season. And he talks about the impact new coach Danton Cole has had on the program.

He talks about the success of Big Ten Hockey and discusses the challenges and opportunities facing the entire sport of college hockey.

Moore recalls some favorite moments from over 1,000 game broadcasts – like the Spartans’ 2007 hockey national championship. His favorite memory, though, involves having his daughter by his side in the press box for many of his broadcasts.

He talks about how both hockey and broadcasting have changed over the years, and he offers his advice for young people who want to get into the ever-changing communications industry.
