Michael Cole Suffering From 65% Hearing Loss


During an appearance on “The Pat McAfee Show” on Thursday, Michael Cole revealed that he is technically deaf.

Cole revealed during the podcast that he suffers from roughly 65% hearing loss, saying,

“I’m actually [at] 65% hearing loss. They make these special in-ear pieces that go underneath my headset on air, so I can actually hear”

Cole would also go on to comment on how he still loves his job, remarking that,

“When the red light goes on, it’s fun. There’s a lot leading up to it and a lot of stuff that happens during the week, but Friday nights at 8 o’clock, when that red light goes on, it’s the best job in the world. You get to be play-by-play guy, color analyst, but you also get to be a storyteller and a narrator. You get to be an actor, you’re part of the show. It’s the best of every world possible.”
