"Emmanuel is a budding star. His talent is off the charts and met with equal humility, work ethic and kindness. He has all the makings to be the future voice of a major network. I can’t wait to see his journey unfold."
-Ryan Ruocco — ESPN & YES Network
An award-winning radio and television sportscaster with seven years of professional and collegiate experience, Emmanuel Berbari joined Siena College as "Voice of the Saints" in 2021, becoming one of the youngest full-time Division 1 play-by-play announcers in the country. Emmanuel hosts and produces shows on WFAN in New York City, where he's worked in a variety of capacities since 2018.
Emmanuel's play-by-play experience includes Fordham Football, Basketball and Atlantic 10 championships on ESPN's digital platforms.
