For Immediate Release:
FRANK NOBILO JOINS CBS SPORTS AS GOLF ANALYST
Frank Nobilo, veteran broadcaster and winner of 14 tournaments worldwide, joins CBS Sports as an analyst for the Network’s golf coverage beginning in 2015. He will work select tournaments, including the Masters® and PGA Championship. The announcement was made today by Sean McManus, Chairman, CBS Sports.
“Frank Nobilo is one of the most intelligent and engaging analysts in golf,” said McManus. “His knowledge of the game and insight as a worldwide champion make him a perfect fit for CBS Sports’ golf coverage. We are proud to showcase the strongest ensemble of voices in golf.”
Nobilo won 14 titles worldwide, including two Sarazen World Opens and the PGA TOUR’s 1997 Greater Greensboro Chrysler Classic during his career from 1979 to 2002. A three-time member of the International Presidents Cup team, he also served as assistant captain for the 2009 and 2011 International Presidents Cup team. Nobilo is a veteran of several professional golf tours and represented New Zealand 12 times in the World Cup, and 11 times in the Dunhill Cup. Nobilo began his professional golfing career on the Australasian Tour in 1979 after winning the New Zealand Amateur in 1978.
Since retiring from full-time competition in 2002, Nobilo has served as an analyst for Golf Channel on its coverage of the Champions Tour and PGA TOUR, and will continue in that role.
Nobilo was born May 14, 1960 in Auckland, New Zealand. He resides in Orlando, Fla., with his wife Selena, and daughter, Bianca.
**Because a few folks felt the CBS release sounds a little like Nobilo is making a primary move over to the network, Golf Channel's rep confirmed that Nobilo has a multi-year deal with the network that goes beyond 2015. So expect Frank to continue his starring role in Live From and elsewhere.
