“This is a ride through time. Sports is its thread, but the experience covers so much terrain that you don’t have to be a sports fan to enjoy it. Even so, sports die-hards will learn a lot.”
— Mary Carillo
Emmy Award-winning sports broadcaster and Peabody Award-winning storyteller Mary Carillo was the host of a luncheon to launch New York Sports Tours. At the event, she recorded a video that can be heard only by tour guests.
Carillo, a New York City native and former international tennis champion, narrates the vast majority of the original mini-documentaries played exclusively to New York Sports Tours guests.
Other brief documentaries on the tour are narrated by New York Sports Tours founder and New York City native Jordan Sprechman.
“New York Sports Tours . . . ties into the larger culture . . . To make it work, the organizers integrate . . . actual sites . . . archival photos and footage . . . an onboard host and recorded mini-documentaries narrated by Mary Carillo.”
