Greg Gumbel Biography

Greg Gumbel’s standout work in the world of sports broadcasting has made his face, name and voice as familiar as any in the industry. Throughout 50 years in the business, Gumbel has become one of the most outstanding and best known announcers in sports television. He has covered everything from Major League Baseball to the NBA to the NFL, the Men’s NCAA Championship Tournament, the Summer and Winter Olympic games, World Figure Skating Championships, the Daytona 500 and hosted Wimbledon for NBC Sports to name a few.

Prior to returning to the booth in 2006, Gumbel successfully completed his second season as the host of the CBS' Emmy award winning show “The NFL Today.” He formerly hosted “The NFL Today” on CBS from 1990-93 and “The NFL on NBC.” Gumbel 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 called the thrilling action at Super Bowl XXXVIII in Houston and Super Bowl XXXV in Tampa. He is the first network broadcaster to both call play-by-play and host the Super Bowl. He hosted Super Bowl XXVI in Minneapolis, Super Bowl XXX in Tempe and Super Bowl XXXII in San Diego.

When the college basketball regular season winds down and the tournament expectations intensify, Gumbel slides into the anchor chair to take fans into and through March Madness. He has been the CBS host of March Madness since 1998. During the height of March Madness, Gumbel spends hours in the studio with his colleagues, analysts Clark Kellogg, Seth Davis, Kenny Smith and Charles Barkley, providing CBS viewers with exciting highlights and coverage on the Road to The Final Four.

Gumbel is a 3-time Emmy award winner, and the 2007 Honoree of the prestigious Pat Summerall Award for his outstanding work in broadcasting. He served the maximum 12 years as a member of the March of Dimes National Board of Trustees and an additional 13 years as a Special Advisor to the President of the March of Dimes. Gumbel is honored to be a member of the St Jude’s Children’s Hospital Sports Council. And having completed the maximum 10 year term as a member of the Board of Regents at his alma mater, Loras College in Dubuque, Iowa, Gumbel has been unanimously elected to Regent Emeritus status by the Board.
