Emmy-Award winning sportscaster and New York Times best-selling author Len Berman has covered nearly every major sports event throughout his 40-year career in broadcasting. From multiple Super Bowls to the Olympics, he’s seen it all. The legendary sportscaster joins John Berman and Christine Romans on “Starting Point” this morning to talk about his new kids book, “The Greatest Moments in Sports: Upsets and Underdogs”.
Berman’s sixth book, he says he realized halfway through reading it that “it wasn’t really a sports book. “I know that sounds odd because every story is sports,” Berman says. “I envisioned young kids reading this and they see boys and girls, and blacks and whites, and Latinos and Asian and Native Americans and handicapped, and they’re all succeeding. And I’m thinking, ‘Gee, maybe it’s a book of empowerment.’” Berman then delves into his memories of the greatest moments he’s witnessed and covered in sports.
