Mike Lupica is one of the most prominent sports writers in America, and for more than 30 years, has added magazines, sports biographies, other non-fiction books on sports, as well as television to his impressive resume. This ESPN anchor has also added children’s novelist to that list in recent years with his very popular novel series, The Comeback Kids. His newest installment to the series, Long Shot, is already getting good reviews. You can catch mike on ESPN’s "The Sports Reporters" and on ESPN2’s "The Mike Lupica Show."
Dr. Will Miller
Long time friend of the show, Dr. Will Miller, is an ordained minister, former standup comedian, keynote speaker, teacher and full-time therapist at a major University, yet somehow he still finds time to write books including Why We Watch and Refrigerator Rights (the latter of which has just recently been re-released with an all new chapter and updated research.) He's also the formorst expert on how classic television secretly revals the inner stuggles in all of us. Meaning, while you watch shows like "Mr. Ed" and "Bewitched" to get a few laughs, he's looking to find out what's going on in that messed up brain of yours. Follow Dr. Will on twitter.
When you turn on a sporting event on NBC, chances are you're going to see Bob Costas. He's been the face and voice of the NBC Sports since joining the team in 1980. In that time, he's covered numerous Super Bowl, World Series and NBA Finals broadcasts as well as eight Olympic Games. In 2001, Costas also became a member of HBO sports, joining the "Inside the NFL" cast as well as hosting his own shows "On the Record" and "Costas Now." Costas is an Emmy Award winner, best-selling author and can be found every Sunday night hosting NBC's "Football Night in America." Costas will be covering Super Bowl XLVI in Indianapolis, IN.
Scott Dunn is a stand-up comedian, a novelist, a father of two, and a husband of one. He's also a full-time history buff, and famous for his roasts of famous historical figures and events. He also occasionally calls in with History Lessons and Quizes, which means if you see his name on the guest board, you'd better start studying. In his spare time (when he's got any) he writes jokes for a number of shows including "Are You Smarter Than a 5th Grader." And that's a little bit about Scott Dunn.
