Gary Nedrow Bender (born September 1, 1940) is a retired American sportscaster and 2008 inductee into the Kansas Sports Hall of Fame. He officially retired, April 13, 2011, from Fox Sports Arizona after 18 years calling the NBA's Phoenix Suns games. Bender, who was born in Norton, Kansas, and raised in Ulysses, Kansas, graduated from Ulysses High School in 1958.

He called the Thanksgiving game between Washington and Dallas with Pat Summerall and Tom Brookshier. In 1981, CBS in the first half of the season did not have set teams. After Thanksgiving, Gary Bender and Frank Glieber moved over to college basketball, which was CBS' first season of broadcasting that particular sport. This was Fred Dryer's only season as a broadcaster before he went into acting, most famously as the star of the 1984–91 NBC series Hunter.

I flipped through it a bit myself before giving it to my son, whom it was a gift for, just to see if was going to be an easy read and knew instantly it was appropriate for high school levels and up. He is almost through with it now and said he has learned so much and gained such insight into a career he has long anticipated becoming involved in and studying in college next year. I cant speak about what actual tips etc it contains, because I havent read it myself, but he makes time each day to read it and then keeps going so obviously it has captivated him and that is a good enough sign for me to say go buy this book!!

Very valuable information for those of us ready to hit the press box.

I am not a big reader of books. Often I will buy a book, set it down
and not pick it up for weeks, or even months or years. However, this
book I sat and read almost cover-to-cover. As a sportscaster myself,
I found it entertaining, informative, and provides excellent direction
and insight for younger men and women who are hoping to break into
this field. If you are planning or hoping to one day go into the
broadcasting industry, whether its in sports, news, or whatever, I
would say this is required reading!

This is a well organized, enjoyable look into this dynamic profession. Bender's work is professorial; young broadcasters would do well to pay attention to his sagacity. Although Bender provides ample warning of his bias toward exacting preparation, he might lose a little of the essence of sports broadcasting. In treating broadcasting as tantamount to a science, he leaves you without the reason why he does it (and why I do it and why we all do it) -- sports broadcasting is FUN. It is revitalizing. Bender at times treats it as something that requires such precision that it saps his energy. I will say, however, that stripping some of the luster away from this coveted and misunderstood profession is necessary. As mentioned in the Booklist review, he provides plenty of "look-what-you're-getting-into" advice. He's done a good job at that, along with providing clear and understandable advice for someone willing to follow in his shoes. Besides, nobody needs to be told how much fun it is. What we DO need to be told, Bender provides.
