Tiki Barber

NFL Former Pro Bowl Running Back & Founder of Thuzio

Tiki Barber Biography

Tiki Barber is the unique individual who combines a stellar portfolio of athletics and broadcasting with a captivating story-telling presence at the podium. He is a renaissance man without equal today, as evidenced by a resume that includes: NBC correspondent, retired Pro Bowl running back, entrepreneur, best-selling author, producer, actor, corporate spokesman, scholar and philanthropist.

Barber joined NBC Universal in 2007 on the heels of his Hall of Fame-caliber NFL career. A three-time Pro Bowler, he now splits his time between being a correspondent for NBC News and serving as an analyst for NBC`s Football Night in America. Tiki also contributed to the 2008 Olympic games, 2009 Golden Globe Awards and will cover the 2010 Olympics as well.

In 10 seasons on the gridiron, Barber joined Marshall Faulk and Marcus Allen as the only players in NFL history with at least 10,000 yards rushing and 5,000 yards receiving. He retired ranking third all-time in yards per carry (4.7) and 10th all-time in yards from scrimmage (15,632; rushing and receiving). Barber holds every conceivable Giants rushing record—total yards, rushing yards, rushing attempts and rushing touchdowns—and in his final regular-season game broke his own franchise single-game rushing mark with 234 yards, in a win vs. the rival Washington Redskins.

A tireless entertainer and communicator, during his playing days Barber was a weekly co-host on FOX News Channel’s morning program FOX and Friends (2005-07). He debunked the jock stereotype as host of The National Sweep with Tiki Barber, a radio program delving into politics, news and entertainment that featured guests including: John McCain, U.S. Senator; Matt Lauer, host of the TODAY show; Rear Admiral Kenneth P. Moritsugu, U.S. Surgeon General; and Daniel Kurtzer, former U.S. Ambassador to Israel.

As active in the community as he was on the gridiron, Barber devotes generous time and money to the Children’s Miracle Network, the Fresh Air Fund and the Robin Hood Foundation, among others. Barber’s memoir Tiki: My Life in the Game and Beyond, was a New York Times best-seller. A staunch advocate for literacy, he has also co-authored with Ronde five successful children’s books, and is under contract to write two more.

In 2007, as Chairman of Tiki Ventures LLC, Barber entered into a joint venture with The Related Companies for the purposes of restoring and refurbishing affordable housing stock, including more than 5,000 units across the county.

AT A GLANCE: Born premature and suffering from febrile seizures as a toddler, Tiki Barber was told he never could play contact sports. But he used the fierce determination passed down to him by his mother—a breast cancer survivor and single parent—to shine both athletically and academically, at the University of Virginia McIntire School of Commerce (Phi Eta Sigma Honor Society). In demand as a corporate pitchman, he has appeared in national ad campaigns for VISA, Johnston & Murphy Shoes, Cadillac, Dish Network, Reebok, Foot Locker and Sports Illustrated.

In 2005 he acted in the off-Broadway play Women of Manhattan and in 2001, he was named one of People Magazine’s 50 Most Beautiful People. At the podium, he speaks not only of his path to an amazing NFL career but also about responsibility and accountability in one’s professional life—sharing with audiences his belief in the influence business leaders and CEOs can have on today’s youth. Barber also stresses the importance of teamwork, determination and humility in creating success both in life and in business.
