Sports Speaker Kirk Herbstreit, or “Herbie” as he’s more affectionately known in the college football community, is a former Ohio State quarterback turned college football analyst. Kirk works alongside Lee Corso, Desmond Howard and Chris Fowler to headline ESPN College GameDay. The College GameDay crew travels across the country each season, broadcasting their show from the heart of college campuses hosting the game of the week. Many college football fans and sports fans for that matter only remember a few of their favorite sports broadcasters, but Kirk and the College GameDay team are widely recognized as the face of college football media. When he is not broadcasting the show, Kirk also works as a color commentator for primetime games played and broadcasted on both ESPN and ABC. He and partner Brent Musberger have been the lead commentators for the last 6 Rose Bowl games as well as the last 4 National Championships.

Sports Speaker Kirk sure does know a thing or two about a rivalry. Herbstreit set the record for most pass completions against Ohio State’s archrival Michigan, completing 28 total passes for 371 yards as the starter in his senior season in 1992. Four years after graduating from Ohio State University Kirk took a job as an ESPN analyst and began his career as the host of College GameDay. Kirk and the GameDay crew have won a total of 3 Sports Emmy awards for Best Studio Show and Kirk took home back to back Sports Emmy’s as the Best Studio Analyst in all of sports in 2010 and 2011.

Kirk’s philanthropic endeavors include work with The Make a Wish Foundation and their Ultimate Sports Auctions as well FORE Cancer Research, a Columbus, Ohio based charity. He is also an active supporter of Operation Homefront, an organization dedicated to providing financial aid and other support to families with members in the military.
