As a teenager, Angel first emigrated with his family to Chicago, before eventually settling in the San Francisco Bay Area. In high school he played baseball and football (teaming with O. J. Simpson on the latter), and after graduating from City College of San Francisco began a career in broadcasting.
In the 1970s Angel broadcast for the San Francisco Giants (1977–78), as well as Stanford University football and University of San Francisco basketball. Stints with the Minnesota Twins (1984–86), Baltimore Orioles (1988–90, 1992) and New York Yankees (1991) followed. In 1993, he left the Orioles to become the Florida Marlins' first radio voice, and was behind the microphone for the Marlins' first world championship in 1997, which was the same year he took over the television broadcast as well, a position he would hold until 2000. After two years with ESPN (2000–01), Angel returned to the Giants in 2002 (teaming with former Orioles partner Jon Miller); and in 2004 he began a second tenure with the Orioles. In his career, he was also engaged in World Series two times as a broadcaster. He usually does 5 innings of play-by-play on Orioles radio currently as he does the 1st and 2nd innings, the 5th inning, and the 8th and 9th innings and his broadcast partner Fred Manfra, but when occasionally paired with former Oriole pitcher Ben McDonald, he works all nine innings.
Angel lives in El Dorado Hills with his wife Antoinette. He has three grown children: Tony, Natalie and Jonathan. Angel's son, Jonathan, was one of the stars of the teen sitcom Saved by the Bell: The New Class.
