This is the face behind the voice that is now iconic in Australian sport.
But despite being a sought-after presenter for major sporting events, including this week's Hopman Cup, Craig Willis admits his prowess on the other side of the microphone has always been limited.
"I grew up in Sydney, so probably rugby union was the sport I enjoyed most," Willis said.
"It would have been good to be a Wallaby, but I was no hope."
Helped into his first radio job in rural Lithgow, NSW, by broadcast legend John Laws as a teenager, for two decades Willis, 59, has been part of Australian Opens and AFL Grand Finals.
Several AFL clubs also get him for their annual presentations and he is heard at Australia's big golf tournaments.
He is a friend to sport stars such as golfers Adam Scott and Geoff Ogilvie and tennis greats Pat Rafter, John Newcombe and Tony Roche. And he was flattered that Adelaide Crows star Patrick Dangerfield can imitate his voice perfectly.
But as an assistant AFL team manager on four tours to Ireland, he struck an especially close connection to Sydney's dual Brownlow medallist Adam Goodes.
"I sat next to him when he won the Rising Star award and his mum was there," Willis said. "She toppled my chair over, she was so excited. He's just such a genuine bloke."
He also rates Perth Arena equal to any indoor venue and said anyone building a tennis centre should check it out.
