Views: 705

Frank Deford is one of the most beloved sports journalists in America.

A contributing writer to Sports Illustrated for more than fifty years, and a longtime correspondent on Real Sports with Bryant Gumbel, these days, Deford is perhaps best known for his weekly commentaries on NPR’s Morning Edition. Since 1980, Deford has recorded 1,600 of them, and his new book, I’d Know That Voice Anywhere, collects the very best commentaries on athletes and the world of sports from the past 36 years.

Join him and sportscaster Bob Costas as they discuss Deford’s new book, athlete sex scandals, steroids, concussions, the NCAA, why gay athletes “play straight” and why he’s worried about living in an economy that is so dominated by golfers.
