Gary Waleik

Executive Producer, Only A Game

At age 6, while watching Bill Russell win his 11th NBA championship with the Boston Celtics, Gary Waleik developed the belief that he’d not only produce a sports show for National Public Radio someday but that he’d do it for decades. What else could provide such a dazzling weekly display of soul-satisfying absurdity, intrigue and humor?

While not producing Only A Game, Gary likes to discuss music, fly fishing and how absurd it is that John Perotti thinks the Cincinnati Bengals will ever amount to a hill of beans.
