Jim Donovan


Jim Donovan, the sports guy at WKYC Channel 3, is probably better known locally as the radio voice of the Cleveland Browns. Hearing Donovan call out a breakaway run is still one of the few (rare) pleasures associated with Sunday afternoons and the eternally embarrassing efforts of the sad sack franchise. "The 25, the 20, he's at the 10, the 5, touchdowwwwwn!" Donovan's relentless energy and buoyant personality bring sports stories to life on Channel 3, and they inject some life into the otherwise lifeless football team that plays at FirstEnergy Stadium. Donovan also happens to be one hell of a guy, and his commentary and analysis on the 7 p.m. newscast is as smart as his live Browns coverage.
