YONKERS, N.Y. -- Happy Birthday to Yonkers’ Mike Breen.

Breen, a longtime resident of Yonkers, turns 55 on Sunday.

Breen, a play-by-play sports commentator for the NBA on ABC and lead announcer for New York Knicks games on the MSG Network, was born May 22, 1961, in New York City. Breen also calls NBA games for ESPN and was formerly a play-by-play announcer for the New York Giants' preseason games. Breen also called regular-season games for the NFL on Fox and NBC.

Breen has done five Olympic Games in his career: one Winter Olympics and four Summer Olympics. At the 2002 Winter Olympics in Salt Lake City, Breen called ski jumping. Breen served as a play-by-play announcer for NBC Sports coverage of men's and women's basketball at the 2008 Summer Olympics.

Breen has been a fixture on the radio as well. He began his professional radio career as a sportscaster on WNBC radio in the early 1980s and frequently substituted for Dave Sims as host of "SportsNight" on the station. From 1989 to 2000, Breen did the sports segment on WFAN and the nationally syndicated "Imus in the Morning" talk/comedy radio show.
