Your Choice for Favorite Giants Broadcaster…

It’s all things New York Giants, as the Super Bowl kicks off in two days.

This week’s poll keeps up the Big Blue theme, as we asked your favorite Giants broadcaster.

FishbowlNY readers selected the late, great Marty Glickman numero uno, with 28 percent of the vote. Glickman a 23-year run behind the mic for Giants’ games.

At number two, the Giants current play-by-play, Bob Papa, who has served in the role since 1995. He received a hefty 26 percent of respondents.

Another longtime Giants announcer, the late Jim Gordon was selected third. Gordon, who picked up 19 percent of the vote, was in the Giants broadcast booth for 18 seasons.

Marv Albert, is forever linked with the Knicks and Rangers, but from 1973 to 1976 Albert succeeded his mentor, Glickman, as the Giants lead play-by-play man.
