for the conversation. From his vantage point, Roy, who was born in the 50’s has an uncanny ability to create a tapestry of culture from the personalities he has known in the sports world and from the artists he grew up and interacted with.
He is well known as the Emmy Award winning host of ESPN’s Up Close Primetime television show and his iconic role in the well-known movie, Jerry Maguire. As you’ll hear, this was only the beginning as Roy has evolved into a multi-level entertainment talent and easy chair humorous philosopher.
