Welcome to our 89th episode of American Real, where we continue on location in Los Angeles and take you on the inside of the Fox Sports complex and bring you an up-close and personal conversation with Colin Cowherd, host of The Herd on Fox Sport Radio and Fox Sports 1. We provide a rare look into The Herd’s upbringing and take you on his life journey rising through the ranks as a sports commentator to where his is today at the pinnacle of his career, as perhaps the best opinionist in the business with his top-rated show. Colin is in true form, giving his opinion about the current tip-toe society we live in, why it’s important to be authentic and even walks us through his typical day. Truly comfortable in his own skin, The Herd reveals he has autism, discusses his secret to being a storyteller and provides his take on the departure of Bob Costas from NBC.
