Curt Smith “is the voice of authority on baseball broadcasting,” says USA Today. His 16 books include the classic Voices of the Game; Storied Stadiums; The Voice: Mel Allen’s Untold Story; A Talk in the Park; Pull Up a Chair: The Vin Scully Story; The Storytellers; Our House; and George H.W. Bush: Character at the Core. Smith is a GateHouse Media columnist, Associated Press award-winning radio commentator, and senior lecturer of English at the University of Rochester. He also has hosted Smithsonian Institution, SiriusXM Radio, and National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum series, written ESPN TV’s “Voices of the Game” documentary series, and written more speeches than anyone for former President George H. W. Bush. The New York Times terms his work “the high point of Bush familial eloquence.” Smith lives with his wife and two children in Upstate New York.
