“Brent’s presence and delivery have come to symbolize big time sports for multiple generations of fans,” said John Skipper, President, ESPN. “When he opens his signature, ‘You are looking live,’ you sit up straight in your chair because you know something important is about to happen.

He is one of the best storytellers to ever grace a sports booth.”
