Marv Albert

Sportscaster Extraordinaire

"Marv's career took off…thanks to his distinctive style and Herculean work ethic, he was soon a household name, at least in the New York metropolitan area," said Steve Wulfe for Sports Illustrated. In 1977 he was recruited by NBC to broadcast and shortly after this he was called on to broadcast all kinds of national sports programs. Albert also developed a reputation as being the fill in for anyone who wouldn't show up for The David Letterman Show. David would call up Albert and ask him to put together some of his sports bloopers.
