ALEXANDRIA, Va. – Renowned sportscaster Brent Musburger will speak during the National Beer Wholesalers Association (NBWA) 80th Annual Convention and Trade Show on Tuesday, October 10. The convention will take place October 8 – 11, 2017, at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Musburger had front row seats for sports’ biggest moments over the last four decades. He retired in January 2017 from ESPN and ABC television networks. Formerly with CBS Sports and one of the original hosts of The NFL Today, he also has covered the NBA, MLB, NCAA football and basketball and NASCAR. Musburger has served as a studio host for games, a play-by-play man and halftime host. He has performed postgame wrap-up segments and covered championship trophy presentations, and he is a member of the Montana Broadcasters Association Hall of Fame. He also serves as managing editor at Vegas Stats and Information Network and is the lead on-air talent.

“For those of us who grew up listening to Brent Musburger provide commentary and analysis of many of the biggest sporting events of our time, this is an exciting opportunity to hear from a true sports insider,” said NBWA president & CEO Craig Purser. “He’s going to have many stories to share -- from the sidelines to the press boxes – as well as lessons learned from some of the most impactful sports figures of our time.”
