ESPN's "Lombardi's Legacy" Special to Air June 6 at 9 p.m. ET

One-Hour Special Hosted by Chris Berman to Celebrate Legendary Green Bay Packers Coach Vince Lombardi

ESPN will commemorate the coaching legacy and accomplishments of Vince Lombardi with a one-hour special entitled Lombardi's Legacy hosted by Chris Berman on Thursday, June 6, at 9 p.m. ET. The program coincides with this month's 100th anniversary of the National Football League coaching legend's birth (June 11, 1913).

Berman will be joined in-studio by ESPN analyst and Pro Football Hall of Famer Mike Ditka and former Green Bay Packers right guard Jerry Kramer, who played for Lombardi and helped lead the Packers to five NFL titles and wins in Super Bowls I and II. Hall of Fame Packers quarterback Bart Starr is also scheduled to be interviewed.

An NFL Films-produced feature within the show will offer rare in-game audio of Lombardi coaching. Current and former NFL head coaches will also reflect on Lombardi's legacy, discussing his indelible impact on the game of football more than 40 years since he last coached in the NFL. (Note: Lombardi's Legacy will re-air on Tuesday, June 11 at 9 p.m. on ESPN2)
