Real Sports with Bryant Gumbel to End HBO Run After 29 Seasons

“Real Sports with Bryant Gumbel” is coming to an end at HBO.

The sports talk series has been a part of the premium cabler’s lineup for 29 years.

“Since day one at ‘Real Sports’ we’ve consistently tried to look beyond the scoreboard, and focus instead on the many societal issues inherent in the world of sports,” Gumbel said in a statement. “In the process we’ve had the opportunity to tell complex stories about race, gender, class, opportunity and so much more. Being able to do so at HBO for almost 3 decades has been very gratifying. I’m proud of the imprint we’ve made, so I’m ready to turn the page. Although goodbyes are never easy, I’ve decided that now’s the time to move on.”
