Golf has an abundance of compelling, real-life stories waiting to be told about the game and the characters that inhabit it. Golf Channel’s new original series, "In Play with Jimmy Roberts", will scour the globe to uncover the most compelling stories in golf, premiering Tuesday, March 12 at 10:30 p.m. ET and returning monthly.
Host and managing editor Jimmy Roberts, a 13-time Emmy Award-winner at ESPN and NBC Sports, has drawn critical acclaim for telling stories in sports during his distinguished career, which includes covering 14 Olympics for multiple networks.
"If you tell stories in this business, there are three things you hope for: resources, time and something compelling to talk about,” said Roberts. “With In Play, we are so fortunate to have the first two via Golf Channel, and that will provide us with the exciting challenge each month to search for the third. Fortunately, the depth of content related to the game of golf is rich with great stories from all corners of the globe and all levels of the sport."
"At each Olympics for decades, viewers have laughed, cried and been inspired by stories told by Jimmy Roberts. In Play will continue in the rich NBC Sports tradition of storytelling, by now turning the lens on compelling stories related to golf,” said Mike McCarley, President of Golf Channel.
