(KUTV) Thurl Bailey is a husband and father who has enjoyed watching his children grow up and become successful.

"It's the best feeling," he said. "Now I know what my parents felt."

He also keeps very busy with his job with the Utah Jazz, humanitarian work, and more.

This is 18th year as a broadcast analyzer for the Jazz, which he believes is "the best job in the world."

"I have this knowledge that I'm able to share through television and radio to the fans--to basketball fans, to Jazz fans," he said.

Part of the job includes a great partnership with his fellow broadcaster, Alema Harrington.

"Not a lot of people can do what he does," Bailey said of Harrington. "He's very, very good at keeping the whole show together."
