An award-winning radio and television sportscaster with six years of collegiate and professional experience, Emmanuel Berbari is currently the lead play-by-play broadcaster for Fordham Football and Men's Basketball on 90.7 WFUV, the university's 50,000-watt NPR affiliate, and regularly appears on ESPN3, broadcasting St. John's Baseball, Softball, Volleyball and more. Behind the scenes, he is an associate producer at WFAN and a production assistant at Westwood One Sports.
Emmanuel is the youngest recipient of Fordham's Marty Glickman Award for Excellence in Play-By-Play—and only the second to earn the honor twice. He was named one of six All-American collegiate broadcasters as part of Sportscasters Talent Agency of America's Jim Nantz Award.
"Emmanuel is a budding star. His talent is off the charts and met with equal humility, work ethic and kindness. He has all the makings to be the future voice of a major network. I can’t wait to see his journey unfold."
-Ryan Ruocco, ESPN & YES Network
“Every year I’m more and more blown away by the quality of college-level broadcast talent that comes through Fordham’s WFUV Radio — and Emmanuel is without a doubt the station's newest star pupil. His technical skill and potential as a play-by-play announcer and host are surpassed only by his character. I can’t wait to see how far he goes in our industry.”
