Champions for Children Master of Ceremonies – Bruce Beck


We’re honored that Bruce Beck will be the Master of Ceremonies at this year’s Champions for Children event this Friday in New York City.  The event raises money to help families tackling childhood cancer in New York and New Jersey.

Besides lifelong health implications, treating childhood cancer often comes at a great financial cost to families. Even in cases where health insurance is available, expenses can add up quickly. In addition to the cost of cancer diagnosis and treatment, the hidden costs of: food, transportation, and accommodation often add to the financial burden for these families.  We’re delighted that legendary sports anchor Bruce Beck will BE THERE, along with New York Giants Coach Tom Coughlin and a host of other sports personalities and celebrities.

Bruce Beck is in his 15th year with NBC 4 New York. He is the station’s lead sports anchor and host of NBC 4’s popular Sunday night sports show Sports Final. Beck is the host and sideline reporter for New York Giants pre-season football. Beck has received numerous awards including a 2011 New York Sports Emmy, the 2006 New York Emmy for Outstanding Sports Anchor and a 1999 New York Emmy Award for outstanding On-Camera Achievement in Sports Reporting. Overall, he has received nine New York Sports Emmys, one Mid-Atlantic Sports Emmy, and three national Cable Ace Awards. The National Sportscasters and Sportswriters Association (NSSA), have elected him New York State Sportscaster of the Year six straight times — from 2007 through 2012.

The versatile sportscaster has covered a multitude of events for News 4 including three Super Bowls, the World Series, the NBA Finals, the Stanley Cup Finals, the U.S. Open Tennis Championship, the U.S. Open Golf Championship, the NCAA Final Four, the Kentucky Derby and the 2002, 2004, 2006, 2008 and 2012 Olympic Games.  Beck was the host of WNBC-TV’s coverage of the ING New York City Marathon. He also hosted the Toyota Giants Report with Coach Tom Coughlin, and The Rutgers Report with Coach Greg Schiano. He has hosted and contributed to a number of WNBC-TV specials including the Belmont Stakes, the U.S. Open Golf Championship, and Glory Days, which preceded New York Yankees postseason games. In
addition, Beck has hosted the Sun America Sports Desk and the All-State Sports Update for NBC Sports, and served as a sideline reporter for the network’s coverage of the NBA and WNBA on NBC.
For the past 12 summers, Beck, along with sportscaster Ian Eagle, has run a Sports Broadcasting Camp at the Yogi Berra Museum and Learning Center in Montclair, New Jersey. The camp, considered the best of its kind in the country — teaches the fundamentals of broadcasting and features lectures by some of the top broadcasters in the New York area.
