Departing from the show's regular format, host Bryant Gumbel leads correspondents Mary Carillo, Bernard Goldberg, Jon Frankel, Andrea Kremer, Soledad O'Brien and David Scott in a spirited discussion, recapping the most significant stories from 2019. In the season finale, Gumbel huddles with the correspondents individually to spotlight one of their most noteworthy pieces, allowing the reporters to drill deeper into their stories.
In 2019, REAL SPORTS traveled throughout the U.S. and internationally to explore unique and compelling subjects, including: Norway's unprecedented and successful youth sports model; the harrowing rise in racehorse deaths at US tracks; the fallout of the deal the city of Detroit gave the Ilitch family to build a new arena amidst the city filing for bankruptcy; the allure behind the nearly three-decade-old Brainerd Jaycees Ice Fishing Extravaganza in Minnesota; and the annual Varsity Wine Tasting Match between Cambridge and Oxford, among others.
Premiering on HBO in April 1995, REAL SPORTS WITH BRYANT GUMBEL has won 33 Sports Emmy(R) Awards, including 19 for Outstanding Journalism; four Columbia University-duPont Journalism Awards; and two George F. Peabody Awards for excellence in broadcast journalism.
