Alum returns to Athens to discuss covering Olympics

by Robert Stewart, Director

Since joining AP Radio in 1978, Jack Briggs has covered almost every major world-wide sporting event for AP.

[Editor’s note added 2/8/12: a podcast of Briggs’ talk is now available.]

He has been to every Olympics since 1980 and is one of two primary anchors for all Olympic programming. 2008 marked Jack’s 16th straight Olympics for the AP where he served as the anchor of the daily recap podcast. He also anchors the weekly AP College Basketball podcast and covers major sporting events.

Before joining AP, Jack was a sportscaster in several major cities around the country. He was the play-by-play voice of the ABA’s Utah Stars and for several years called college basketball games. Jack graduated from Ohio University and is originally from Cleveland, Ohio.
