Jim Nantz, the 2009 and 2008 Emmy Award winner for "Outstanding Sports Personality - Play-by-Play" and five-time National Sportscaster of the Year, has covered virtually every sport for CBS since joining it in 1985. He has been the lead play-by-play voice for "The NFL on CBS" since 2004, teaming up with lead analyst Phil Simms on the Network's #1 NFL announce team. For six years (1998-2003) he anchored the Network's NFL pre-game studio show, "The NFL Today." In addition, Nantz is the anchor of CBS's golf coverage, including the Masters? and the PGA Championship, as well as lead play-by-play announcer for college basketball, including the NCAA Men's Basketball Championship and Final Four.

In 2010, Nantz repeated a rare broadcasting triple in 63 days beginning with his call of the most-watched program in television history, Super Bowl XLIV on February 7, followed by the NCAA Men's Division I Basketball Final Four and the Masters in April. During the same time span in 2007, Nantz became the first commentator in history to complete the rare broadcasting three-feat: calling Super Bowl XLI, the NCAA Men's Division I Basketball Final Four and the Masters.

In April 2010, Nantz was honored with his second consecutive Emmy Award for Outstanding Sports Personality - Play-By-Play at the Sports Emmy Awards in New York City. In May 2010, Nantz was honored by the National Sportscasters and Sportswriters Association with the 2009 National Sportscaster of the Year award. This marked his fifth time overall and third consecutive year, having also won it in 2008, 2007, 2005 and 1998. With this fifth honor, Nantz has won this prestigious award more times than any other CBS sportscaster. Nantz was also inducted into the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame as the youngest recipient of the Curt Gowdy Media Award in 2002.

Among his many other credits, Nantz has served as thehost of "The Super Bowl Today," CBS Sports' Super Bowl XXXV and XXXVIII pre-game shows, and was the primetime host of CBS Sports' coverage of the 1998 Olympic Winter Games.

In 2008, Nantz co-authored with Eli Spielman the New York Times bestseller, "Always By My Side." The book climbed to No. 3 on the New York Times list, making it the highest ranking achieved that year by a sports book. "Always By My Side" spent seven weeks on the New York Times bestseller list.
