Seth Greenberg and Liam McHugh Featured in Awful Announcing’s “Sports Media’s 13 Rising Stars of 2013”

- December 12, 2013 |

Congratulations to IF clients Seth Greenberg and Liam McHugh on being named to Awful Announcing’s “Sports Media’s 13 Rising Stars of 2013”.

Below are excerpts on Seth and Liam, and you can check out the entire list here.

Seth Greenberg – ESPN college basketball analyst

The former Virginia Tech basketball coach joined ESPN shortly after he was fired by the school in April of 2012, and the explosive former coach has taken to broadcasting better than most all of the former coaches brought on by ESPN. Working both in the studio and as a color commentator, Greenberg’s background in both coaching and broadcasting gives him a rare combination of polish, insight, and knowledge, with a dash of emotion thrown in there as well. ESPN made him a fixture on the live daytime episodes of the morning SportsCenter in the spring, where he took on a central role even leading the show in and out of breaks, showing the faith Bristolites have in Greenberg in front of the cameras.”

Liam McHugh – NBC anchor

McHugh hosts NBC’s NHL studio coverage, and does a very good job (especially considering the prevalence of Mike Milbury on the pre and post-game shows). With NBC locking up the NHL’s American rights for the foreseeable future, and ratings creeping up following the lockout, more and more fans will likely be exposed to McHugh and become fans of his work, both in moderating panel discussions and calling highlights. While it’s tough to break through when you work at the same network as Bob Costas and Dan Patrick, McHugh saw his airtime increase at NBC this year, taking on the role of hosting a Notre Dame pregame show on NBCSN.”
