On-air Talent

Marc Istook



Full talent list...

Marc Istook joined NFL Media in 2014 with the launch of NFL NOW. He can be seen primarily hosting content for this NFL digital offering. Prior to his full arrival at NFL Media, he served as a fill-in Host for NFL AM. In all, he has spent more than 15 years working in front of and behind the camera, covering sports, news and entertainment and hosting shows for CNN, TV Guide, Food Network, BBC and others.

A native Texan, his TV career began while still in college as a student at Texas Christian University. A chance opportunity running ESPN's "clock and score" graphic during a TCU game turned into a freelance job that took him around the country working on college football, basketball, NHL and MLB games - basically, a dream come true for a 21-year-old sports fan!

After graduating in 1998 with a degree in Radio/TV/Film (Journalism), Marc landed as the weekend sportscaster at KTEN, an NBC affiliate north of Dallas. There his work was recognized by the Texas Associated Press Broadcasters and Oklahoma Association of Broadcasters. After moving to Los Angeles in 2001, he continued to cover local sports and news before hosting his first national network show, "Gotta Get It" for the Food Network. Afterward, he helped launch the daily entertainment news show, "Hollywood 411" as a correspondent for the TV Guide Network. Since then, Marc has hosted movie premieres for Yahoo!, a reality show for the Speed Channel, covered entertainment news for CNN, tech pieces for the BBC, and filled in on the NFL Network's morning show, NFL AM.

Marc couldn't be more excited to be back covering sports full time on NFL NOW. And when he's not watching games or prepping stories for air, he's an avid traveler, photographer, and fan of TCU football.
