“We are excited about the third edition of JOE BUCK LIVE,” observes Greenburg, who is president of HBO Sports. “Joe is preparing some terrific topics and panels for our viewers.”
Says Buck, “Tune in for our best show yet. What else would I say? Tune in and we’ll find out together if I am right.”
Featuring a live studio audience in New York City, the hour-long show will include live interviews, panel discussions, pre-recorded features and commentary.
Among the scheduled guests for this edition of JOE BUCK LIVE are Pedro Martinez, who pitched for the Philadelphia Phillies in 2009, and NFL stars Brian Urlacher of the Chicago Bears and Brian Westbrook of the Philadelphia Eagles, both of whom have been sidelined with significant injuries this season. An intriguing closing panel will feature FOX Sports’ Michael Strahan and boxing great Floyd Mayweather, neither of whom is likely to shy away from offering provocative opinions.
In addition, Buck will again host an exclusive live streaming of “Overtime” at hbo.com once the televised portion of the show concludes at 11:00 p.m. (ET).
Joe Buck joined HBO Sports in Feb. 2009. The lead play-by-play broadcaster for FOX Sports on Major League Baseball and the NFL, he has won six Sports Emmy® Awards during his FOX broadcast career, which launched in 1994. Buck has called 12 World Series and two Super Bowls.
