The host of NPR and WBUR's "Only A Game" since the program began in 1993, Bill joins us to talk about the latest news from the world of sports and the intersection of sports and storytelling.
- Bill Littlefield has been the host of "Only A Game" since the program began in 1993, but he wrote his first commentary for WBUR in 1984 and shortly thereafter his work began airing on NPR’s "Morning Edition," where for a few years he hit second in a lineup that included Frank Deford on Mondays and Red Barber on Fridays (Bill's commentaries aired on Tuesdays). His most recent book is "Take Me Out," a collection of sports- and games-related verse. For Library of America, he helped edit “The Top of His Game: The Best Sportswriting of W.C. Heinz,” and he wrote the introduction for the anthology.
