Tony Reali
ESPN Around the Horn

Around the Horn host Tony Reali has been at the helm of ESPN’s afternoon sports program for the past 16 years. While he does control the topics and segments of the show, he is known for letting his guests shine in the spotlight.

Whether he’s temporarily muting a guest to allow others to speak or handing out or deducting irrelevant “points” from participants, he always has that boyish smile on his face. His patented crumbled paper toss at the camera to close the show has become a staple of the program.
