The Sports Raconteurs is dedicated to gathering the best storytellers from the playing fields, locker rooms, press box, grandstands, and periphery of sport. Master interviewer holds court in an over-cocktails-style sit down with people who make us laugh, recollect and look on in drop-jawed amazement with their insider remembrances and anecdotes.
The raconteurs come from all corners of sports from Hall of Fame-caliber to just good enough to be there. They managed, they played, they talked or they wrote, but all bring insightful and often offbeat perspective. They were there, love to talk about it, and are just plain fun!
The Sports Raconteurs is conceived with a nod to the great newspaper columnists, broadcasters, and writers of the past. The show captures the spirit of a late-night pub in New York, Boston, Los Angeles, Chicago or pick your city and the best storytellers are tossing a few back and talking about how it was. It’s a show guaranteed to bring back the most ‘I remember that’; ‘I forgot about that’ and ‘I didn’t know that moment.”.
