In May of 2007, Andrea Kremer, one of the most accomplished sports journalists on television, joined HBO's Real Sports with Bryant Gumbel. Kremer, who the Los Angeles Times has called "the best TV interviewer in the business of covering the NFL," has contributed a host of compelling profiles and features since joining the Emmy Award-winning program.
Among the most memorable interviews since has done at HBO are compelling one-on-ones with Pete Carroll, Lane Kiffin, Barret Robbins, DeMaurice Smith, Bill Parcells, Phil Jackson and Joakim Noah. In March of 2011 she was the correspondent for the college football special report on Real Sports that made national headlines with its in-depth reporting. And in the summer of 2011 landed a revealing interview with the NFL's Harbaugh brothers - Jim and John.
For the season premiere of the program in 2012, Kremer reported on the largely unknown use of Toradol in NFL locker-rooms.
For five seasons she was the sideline and feature reporter for the Emmy Award-winning "NBC Sunday Night Football." She periodically reported on football for the "Today" show and she also reports for NBC at the Olympics.
TV Guide said Kremer is "among TV's best sports correspondents of either sex," and her work is "distinguished by her eagerness to calmly ask tough questions and her refusal to pursue the same old story."
Before joining NBC, The Emmy Award-winning Kremer was ESPN's Los Angeles-based correspondent, providing in-depth reports for "SportsCenter," "Sunday NFL Countdown" and "Monday Night Countdown," as well as other studio shows, winning Emmy Awards for her work in 2001 and 2005.
