Dan Patrick

Dan Patrick is the host of "The Dan Patrick Show" (1-4 PM EST.) Patrick also writes for ESPN The Magazine. He authors "Outtakes," the magazine's most popular page featuring a no-holds-barred, question-and-answer interview with the sports world's most interesting figures. In May 2000, Patrick released a book entitled "Outtakes," published by Hyperion, based on the magazine column. Patrick served as the primary host of ESPN SportsCentury, the network's 30-minute, weekly series profiling the 50 greatest North American athletes of the 20th century.

In January 2000, Patrick was named the National Sportscaster of the Year by the National Sportscasters and Sportswriters Association (NSSA), making him just the second cable commentator to receive the honor.
Patrick transcended the sports world when he served as guest host of ABC's Good Morning America, Dec. 30-31, 1996, and Jan. 1, 1997. In 1998 he received a Sports Emmy Award in the Studio Host category.
Patrick's reports feature astute knowledge, a dry sense of humor and his unique perspective as well as a style which provides a "comfort zone" for his co-host. Dan Patrick received a CableACE Award in 1997 for his work on SportsCenter.

Some of Patrick's finer moments have appeared on SportsCenter's Sunday Conversation, ESPN's in-depth interview segment, where he has brought out the best in many of sports' premier personalities -- including Michael Jordan, Mark McGwire, Barry Sanders, Wayne Gretzky, Larry Bird, Reggie Jackson and Bill Murray.

Prior to working with ESPN, Dan Patrick was a sports anchor/reporter for CNN (1983-89), where his assignments included the World Series, NBA Finals and Winter Olympics. In 1997, he received the Distinguished Alumni Award from the University of Dayton in Ohio.

Born May 15, 1957, Dan Patrick received a bachelor of arts degree in broadcasting from the University of Dayton. He is married and has four children.
