Ernie Johnson – Turner Sports
This Emmy-winning sports personality makes moderating a loquacious cast of NBA greats like Kobe Bryant, Magic Johnson and Charles Barkley look easy. His laid back, confident style creates a perfect counterpoint when matched with the egos and sometimes outrageous personalities of the athletes he clearly admires. With years of experience under his belt, Johnson can extract engaging material from these legends, while keeping the atmosphere light, entertaining, and expertly managed.

Bob Lorenz – YES Network – The dozens of NY Emmy nominations garnered by YES Network every year are in no small part because of this respected sports anchor.
