Bob Ley

He has been with ESPN since 1979, and now the longest serving on-air personality at the network has signed a long-term deal to remain there.

I watched his coverage of the Sepp Blatter resignation yesterday--basically 90 minutes of filling time without many details--and I was marveling at how well he can handle any situation. His "Outside the Lines" show is routinely one of the best on sports television.

Good move, ESPN.
