Cris Collinsworth Wins 14th Sports Emmy

Scott Halleran

Former Bengals and proud Ohio native Cris Collinsworth continues winning awards for a distinguished career in broadcasting.

Former Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver and 700 WLW Sports Talk host Cris Collinsworth earned his 14th Sports Emmy Tuesday night "for his work on NBC's top-rated 'Sunday Night Football.'" NBC Sports Group, which includes NBC, NBC Sports Network, NBCOlympics.com, Bravo, CNBC, MSNBC and Telemundo, won 23 awards, by far the most. Turner Sports (TNT, TBS, NBA TV) won seven. The NFL Network won two and ESPN (ESPN, ESPN 2, ESPN 3D) won five.

After eight seasons in the NFL (all with the Bengals), Collinsworth posted 417 receptions, 6,698 yards receiving and 36 touchdowns, helping Kenny Anderson revitalize a declining career as a significant weapon in the early 80s.

Collinsworth retired after 1988 and began a career in radio, becoming a guest host for Bob Trumpy and later the primary host after Trumpy moved on. Collinsworth, a Dayton native, began doing assignments for HBO's Inside the NFL in 1989 and broadcasting games in 1990 for NBC. Collinsworth has worked for NBC, Showtime and currently sits with Al Michaels in the Sunday Night Football booth.
