Death: Jan. 2, 2012

Sports Journalist, Announcer, Author. Best known for his extensive work with Turner Sports (1984 until his death), notably his coverage of the National Basketball Association. Following a one-year attendance at Presbyterian College (South Carolina), he returned to his native Florida, where he cut his teeth in the newspaper industry with the Ocala Star-Banner, also returning to his studies and graduating from Central Florida Community College in 1964. He had stints on the staffs at the publications The Tallahassee Democrat and Lakeland Ledger, prior to landing the position as beat reporter with the Miami News, covering the Miami Dolphins. In 1984 Huber joined Turner Sports in Atlanta, simultaneously handling reporting duties with CNN and while co-host of the popular program "Sports Tonight" along with Nick Charles, his efforts garnered the series multiple Cable Ace Awards. Huber will perhaps be best remembered for his insightful essays and documentaries, skillfully presented, notably pieces on the lives of professional basketball players off the court. For his story on the Olympic Park bombing during the 1996 Summer Games in Atlanta, he received an Emmy Award. Beginning in 2000, Huber worked exclusively at Turner and added golf to his sports expertise, covering such major tournaments as The Masters and the British Open. His coverage of the 2009 British Open resulted with his penning of "Four Days in July: Tom Watson, the 2009 Open Championship and a Tournament for the Ages". (bio by: C.S.)
