Herbie Kuhn

Herbie Kuhn is known as the "Voice of the Toronto Raptors" and has been the announcer for the team since their inception.  His story of ascension through basketball's announcing ranks is truly a remarkable one.  In 1992, Herbie was announcing "Double A" men's and women's games at Vanier in front of a crowd number which could be counted on your fingers.  Two years later, he was announcing for thirteen teams during the 1994 World Championship of Basketball in Toronto and Hamilton.  By the fall of 1995, he had become the in-house Voice of the Toronto Raptors, Canada's only National Basketball Association franchise, and announces to some of the largest audiences in the league.

Herbie has announced countless basketball, volleyball, football and hockey games for Rexdale's Humber College and for Toronto's York University and Ryerson University.  He continues to announce for these schools when his schedule permits. 

In addition to announcing, Herbie is also the Chaplain for the Toronto Argonauts of the CFL and co-Chaplain of the Toronto Raptors, an accomplished master of ceremonies and motivational speaker.  His list of talents also includes voice-overs, commercials and free lance sports writing. 

Born and raised in the Beach district of Toronto, Herbie lived out the challenges of drugs and alcohol before finding direction in his life.  After five years at Toronto's Malvern Collegiate, he graduated from CEGEP Vanier College in St. Laurent, Quebec in 1994 with a Diplome d'Etudes Collegial in Languages and Literature.

Herbie and his wife Stephanie enjoy being loving parents to their son, Enhle, who was adopted from South Africa in 2006.
