Denari has called Pacers games on FOX Sports Indiana since 2006.

Denari has called Pacers games on FOX Sports Indiana since 2006.

The Pacers’ season is over and President Larry Bird made a coaching change, promoting Nate McMillan to the top chair. The team evaluated over 60 players at the NBA Draft Combine and then they have already conducted two pre-draft workouts.

Chris Denari just completed his 10th season as the Television Voice of the Pacers on FOX Sports Indiana. He’s called games at Bankers Life Fieldhouse for over a decade as the Voice of the Indiana Fever from the beginning.

Denari also does freelance work for the Big Ten Network and the IMS Radio Network. He is a tireless worker who truly loves his craft. We’ll get into all of that as well.
