Greg Gumbel    

Emmy Award-Winning Sportscaster, CBS Sports

Across almost 40 years in the busy world of sports broadcasting, Greg Gumbel has become one of the most outstanding and best known announcers in sports television. In the fall, Gumbel will be the new host of ShowTime’s Inside the NFL, which covers every game, every week, with trademark highlights from NFL Films, special, in-depth features and spirited debate on the hottest topics in the league.

A 3-time Emmy Award winner, Gumbel formerly hosted The NFL Today on CBS from 1990 to 1993, returning in 2006, and The NFL on NBC. He was also the lead play-by-play announcer for CBS Sports’ coverage of the National Football League from 1998 to 2003. In that capacity, he became the first network broadcaster to both call play-by-play and host the Super Bowl.

When the NFL season winds down, Gumbel switches from one premiere sports attraction to another. This year marks his 14th season as CBS’ College Basketball Host for one of the most thrilling events in all of sports, the Men’s NCAA Championship Tournament. During March Madness, Gumbel spends hours hosting in the studio with his colleagues, analysts Seth Davis and Greg Anthony, providing the latest highlights on the exciting Road to the Final Four.

His play-by-play resume includes the NFL, the NBA and college basketball, Major League Baseball and the College World Series Championship, as well as having been the voice at various times for the NY Yankees, the NY Knicks, the Philadelphia 76ers, the Cleveland Cavaliers and the Seattle Mariners. As host, he has covered the NFL and college football, Major League Baseball, the Daytona 500, the World Figure Skating Championships, the 1992 Winter Olympics in Albertville, France and the 1996 Summer Olympics in Atlanta. Gumbel also served as the primetime anchor for the record-setting 1994 Olympic Winter Games from Lillehammer, Norway.

For 12 years, Gumbel served as a member of the National Board of Trustees for the March of Dimes. He has since been named an Honorary Trustee and was elected to the March of Dimes National Board of Advisors in 2007. In 2007, Gumbel was the Honoree and the recipient of the Pat Summerall award for both his stellar work as one of sports outstanding broadcasters and for his efforts to help make a difference in the lives of those he has touched. Most recently, he was honored to become a member of the St. Jude Children’s Hospital Professional Advisory Council.

When Gumbel’s not doing play-by-play or hosting on-air for CBS, he enjoys speaking to groups all around the country sharing his motivational thoughts, ideas and experiences from the world of sports.
