Dave Benz Sports Broadcaster and Media Personality

A Message to the fans:

As most of you are aware I was recently informed Bally Sports North will not be bringing me back as the TV Play-by-Play voice of the Minnesota Timberwolves next season.  The last several weeks since being informed of this decision have been trying to say the least.  While I am still deeply disappointed I am also extremely grateful for having had the opportunity to have been on the call for 771 Timberwolves broadcasts (769 of which were alongside my “brother” Jim Petersen).  I would like to thank everyone at Bally / Fox Sports as well as the Timberwolves organization for having entrusted me with my dream job in the first place.  
 
I still don’t know what the next chapter will be but I do know I have been humbled by the support I have received from Timberwolves and NBA fans from across the globe.  I never could have imagined so many people so demonstratively jumping to have their voices heard in endorsing my work.  I am so, so thankful and appreciative of all of it!
 
I am equally grateful for the texts, phone calls and emails I have received from so many of the people I have had the pleasure of getting to know in some capacity over the last ten years.  To all the people across many different spectrums associated with broadcasting and/or the NBA who reached out… THANK YOU!  
 
I was especially moved by the many folks I have never met who went the extra mile to find my email and send me letters of support… some of which I have decided to share here on this site. Never could I have expected any of this!
 
All of you have helped bring some brightness into what has otherwise been a dark time for me personally and professionally.  I can’t express enough how deeply grateful I am.
 
You have all helped me believe there is something good waiting for me.  I look forward to that next opportunity!
 
Sincerely,
 
Dave Benz
