Currently the longest-tenured broadcaster in hockey, the 2010-11 season marks Rick Jeanneret's 39th year with the Buffalo Sabres. He started with the team prior to the 1971-72 season, serving as the club's radio voice and held that post until 1995. Jeanneret then became the television play-by-play announcer, beginning with the 1995-96 campaign.

He broadcast his first game during the 1971 preseason for the Cincinnati Swords (the Sabres' minor league team at the time). Jeanneret earned his start in 1963 while attending a Niagara Falls Flyers (Junior A) game in which he filled in for the regular announcer who had taken ill. He went on to become the color analyst for one season before moving to the play-by-play position in 1965. A native of St. Catharines, Ontario, Jeanneret currently resides in Niagara Falls, Ontario, with his wife, Sandra. Rick has two sons, Mark and Chris.

Popular analyst Harry Neale joined the Sabres broadcast team prior to the 2007-08 season.  Serving in the same capacity for CBC's "Hockey Night in Canada," Neale broadcast 20 consecutive Stanley Cup Finals.  Neale was the hockey analyst for CBC’s coverage of the 2006 Olympic Winter Games in Torino, the 2002 Olympic Winter Games in Salt Lake City and the 1998 Olympic Winter Games in Nagano.

A former NHL head coach and general manager, Neale worked with the Vancouver Canucks from 1978-82 (head coach and GM), and with the Detroit Red Wings from 1985-86 (head coach).  The New York resident began his career as coach of the NCAA’s Ohio State Buckeyes hockey team in 1966, and also served as coach of the New England Whalers and Minnesota Fighting Saints of the World Hockey Association, and the Ontario Hockey Association’s Toronto Marlboros.
