Literally my favortire on air personality, his charisma, charm, and wity ness no matter who he is speaking to. Rich is a master of the English language and has the razor sharp with of a young Johnny Unitas. I truly hope I get 50% of his abilities’ because if I do, I’ll have a great career. Kudos to the man the legend, and a champion I truly admire, Rich Eisen.rich 2

2. Howard Cosell – born Howard William Cohen; March 25, 1918 – April 23, 1995) was an American sports journalist who was widely known for his blustery, cocksure personality. Cosell said of himself, “Arrogant, pompous, obnoxious, vain, cruel, verbose, a showoff. There’s no question that I’m all of those things.” In its obituary for Cosell, The New York Times described Cosell’s impact on American sports coverage: “He entered sports broadcasting in the mid-1950s, when the predominant style was unabashed adulation, [and] offered a brassy counterpoint that was first ridiculed, then copied until it became the dominant note of sports broadcasting.”

In 1993, TV Guide named Howard Cosell The All-Time Best Sportscaster in its issue Celebrating 40 years of television.

In 1996, Howard Cosell was ranked #47 on TV Guide’s 50 Greatest TV Stars of All Time.cosell 2

Literally the pioneer who set the gold standard for today’s Broadcasters, Howard Cosell told it just like it was. A man unafraid to go right on up to the elephant in the room, and address it. A true difference maker for equality, and trying to tell the whole story.

3. Chris Berman – Berman was born in Greenwich, Connecticut, the son of Peggy Shevell, who worked as a reporter-researcher for Time magazine, and James Keliner Berman, a corporate executive vice president. Berman grew up in Irvington, New York. He was raised Jewish. During his childhood he went to Camp Winnebago in Fayette, Maine. In 1970, he attended the Hackley School and Brown University from which he graduated in 1977 with a degree in history.chris-berman 2 Berman married Katherine “Kathy” Alexinski in 1983. The couple have two children. Berman’s sportscasting career began at Hartford‘s WVIT-TV as a weekend sports anchor. He joined ESPN in 1979, a month after its founding, and has been with the network ever since. Along with Bob Ley, he is one of ESPN’s longest-tenured employees. He is currently the host of Monday Night Countdown. In 1988 and 1989, he hosted ESPN’s first game show, Boardwalk and Baseball’s Super Bowl of Sports Trivia.

berman 1My former # 1 anchor, still a champion of men, but much like Dan Marino in 99, it’s time to hang em up. A man who could interview anyone, arguably the Ron Burgandy, of the sports world. Clearly the man is a hall of famer in the field, and though his better days are behind him, I truly hope I can emulate a little bit of Berman in my styilo.

Jon GrudenWhether it was on the field or on camera, this man’s passion for the game is not only to be admired but respected. A man who goes to his own beat, Gruden is not afrain to show where a player is lacking effort, or a scheme is lacking execution Jon Gruden gladly points it out. Definitley someone I look up to and a guy I hope will join us on our show to give us insights and wisdom learned by experience and lifeness.

 

5. John Madden – John Earl Madden (born April 10, 1936) is a former American football player in the National Football League, a former Super Bowl-winning head coach with the Oakland Raiders in the American Football League and later the NFL, and a former color commentator for NFL telecasts. In 2006, he was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in recognition of his coaching career. He is also widely known for the long-running Madden NFL video game series he has endorsed and fronted since 1988. Madden john-madden-1broadcast with Pat Summerall in the 1980s and 1990s, on CBS and later Fox. He was also the last color commentator for ABC‘s Monday Night Football before it moved to ESPN in 2006. His last regular role was as a commentator for NBC Sunday Night Football. During his career, he worked as the main color commentator for all four major networks.

john_madden_2Madden has also written several books and has served as a commercial pitchman for various products and retailers. He retired from broadcasting on April 16, 2009 in order to spend more time with his family. Realistically We watched the man literally go chenille in front of our eyes, the man is forgetting about more football ingenuity than we can ever hope to gain. Literally a NFL Hall Of Famer, the man started a gaming craze that has endured twoMadden_John_3john_madden_4 decades. A visionary, and a descriptive genouis in his best years, he got Joe Blow Comepinga, to understand the Packer Sweep and what have you. Its easy to be great at something, its exceedingly harder however to explain that greatness to replicate it in some one else. John Madden did this in coaching and on air. A man I will always hold in high esteem, no matter how stupid Frank Caliendo makes him seem.
