The Dan Patrick Show

Before Dan decided to build a ManCave out of an abandoned dance studio, stick in cameras, drag in four motley producers off the street and create a popular radio and television show (while also hosting a little show called Football Night in America on NBC), he held several odd jobs. Patrick worked as a FM DJ, a sports broadcaster in Dayton, Ohio, and at CNN Sports. For 18 years, he helped build ESPN in many roles, most notably, co-host of SportsCenter.

Besides winning the undying love from the four Danettes, Dan has won several real awards:

  • In 1998, he received a Sports Emmy Award in the Studio Host category.

  • In 2000, Dan was named the National Sportscaster of the Year by the National Sportscasters and Sportswriters Association, making him just the second cable commentator to receive the honor.

  • Dan was nominated for a Sports Emmy for the Outstanding Sports Personality – Studio Host Category seven times.

  • In 2013, Patrick won the distinguished Marconi Award and NSSA Sports Broadcaster of the Year for the second time.
