Robert James "Bob" Miller is an American sportscaster, best known as the play-by-play announcer for the Los Angeles Kings team of the National Hockey League on Fox Sports West/Prime Ticket. Miller has held that post with the team since 1973 and has been partnered with Jim Fox for the last seventeen seasons.

Miller received his degree in communication studies from the University of Iowa. While there, he began his broadcasting career, covering the school's football and basketball games.

After his graduation in 1960, Miller began working in television sports journalism in Wisconsin. He later would add announcing duties for the football and hockey teams at the University of Wisconsin?Madison.

In 1972, Jiggs McDonald, the Kings' original play-by-play announcer, left the team to join the expansion Atlanta Flames. Kings owner Jack Kent Cooke, who was also the owner of the Los Angeles Lakers basketball team, put Lakers' announcer Francis "Chick" Hearn in charge of the search for McDonald's replacement. Miller sent tapes to Hearn and earned Hearn's recommendation for the position. However, Cooke decided to hire long-time San Francisco Bay Area announcer Roy Storey.
