HBO’s “Real Sports with Bryant Gumbel” debuts its new season tomorrow night at 10 pm ET/PT with an interview with Reggie Jackson to coincide with the release of Reggie’s new memoir, Becoming Mr. October.
According to HBO’s press release, “Gumbel heads to Yankee Stadium and sits down with the Hall of Famer and outspoken 67-year-old special adviser to the club. The 14-time All-Star opens up about his personal life and storied career, offering insights into race relations during his playing days and the magical ‘77 and ‘78 seasons that cemented his legacy as one of the greatest clutch sluggers.”
I like Bryant Gumbel’s interviews and he was terrific to me years ago when I was on the “CBS Early Show” promoting my novel, The Secret Ingredient. We even talked about the Yankees in the interview. Take a look. (I’m sucking on a throat lozenge during the entire interview!)
Anyhow, it’ll be quite a doubleheader tomorrow night since I’ll be watching the re-broadcast of “Being: Mariano” on FOX Sports 1 earlier in the evening.
