As host of ESPN’s Up Close and Up Close Prime Time, Roy Firestone earned the label “best interviewer in the business” from no less than Sports Illustrated. But Firestone’s more than just a sports journalist recognized for his abilities as a commentator and interviewer: he’s also a critically acclaimed comic impressionist, musician, singer and storyteller, enlightening and motivating audiences with stories from the lives he’s covered.
Audiences don’t just get Roy Firestone-they get Muhammad Ali, Neil Diamond, the Bee Gees, Johnny Mathis and a dozen other surprise guests in this comedic tour de force of Firestone’s abilities as an impressionist. Through song, multimedia presentation and compelling stories drawn from the lives of the popular figures he’s covered, Firestone provides audiences with “motivetainment”-showing them how to achieve success and keep pushing forward to reach their own goals, while keeping them uplifted and entertained. Firestone can be seen on FOX’s Beyond the Glory and Face to Face with Roy Firestone on HDNet. His interviews with noted sports celebrities are frequently rebroadcast on ESPN Classic.
Firestone’s the author of three books: Up Close, Face to Face and Don’t Make Me Cry, Roy.
