JIMMY IN ACTION
JIMMY'S WORK HAS APPEARED ON:
MEET JIMMY COOK
Sports broadcasting isn't a career for Jimmy Cook, it's a piece of who he is.
At the age of 8, he got his start broadcasting Butler University Men's Basketball games into a tape recorder from the rafters of Hinkle Fieldhouse. From there, he continued to hone his craft until high school where he studied under one of the top broadcasters in the state of Indiana.
Next, he headed to Indiana University where he called Men's and Women's basketball games, hosted his own sports tv show, and worked at CBS Sports Radio in Indy, all while earning his degree.
Currently, he is a Play-by-Play Voice for HallPass Media and a broadcaster for the NBA and ESPN NBA Summer League.
A sports man of the people, Cook is working everyday to ensure fans who can't make the game, will feel like they have a courtside seat.
"Jimmy has a feel for the game that some work their whole life to develop. His traditional play by play style with a modern twist immediately tells the viewer that something important is happening and that they'll be entertained if they stick around. A total pro at his craft, anybody hiring Cook is getting a broadcaster that will handle anything thrown at him and deliver time and time again."

Co-Founder & VP of Business Operations
"Jimmy Cook is going to be a star in this industry. He has a tremendous feel for the moment, the game and he is a pleasure to work with. He has the ability to call a game and have a conversation at the same time. He documents the game while giving the audience a feeling like they are in on the conversation. If given an opportunity I sincerely feel he will be the next great play by play announcer."
