He also often entertains his viewers by doing a character called “Biff Barnes” who was a caricature of minor league baseball announcers. The late Pulitzer Prize-winning columnist Jim Murray called him, “the best interviewer I’ve ever seen. That’s not the best interviewer in sports, that’s the best interviewer period.” With this kind of praise, a Roy Firestone speaker appearance at your next corporate function will do more than just excite your audience based on name-recognition.
