MILWAUKEE — Jim Paschke, the Milwaukee Bucks‘ television play-by-play announcer for the past 35 years, plans to retire at the end of the season.
Paschke’s overall broadcasting career has lasted 48 years. He has called more than 2,000 Bucks games. He also has called games for University of Wisconsin football and basketball, the Milwaukee Brewers and Marquette basketball among other assignments.
He was the 2018 recipient of the NBA’s Todd Harris Award, which recognizes an NBA broadcaster or executive for showing teamwork and providing inspiration. Paschke was only the second person to receive that award.
