What They're Saying

TV Guide, 1995

“Ann Liguori is Cable’s Queen of Locker Room Talk”

Resident Magazine, 2019

Ann, a trailblazer and dynamo in sports broadcasting, owns her own content, is a sports talk show host, correspondent, Executive Producer, author, business owner and philanthropist.

New York Observer, 2001

“But then there’s Ann Liguori, host of the Friday night-Saturday morning late shift. Just one drop of her honey-sweet voice over the radio and you know Ms. Liguori is different. She builds her callers up; she doesn’t tear them down. She’s accepting of different opinions and she’s thoughtful about her own. In other words, she’s a … woman.”

Ely Callaway, Callaway Golf, 1999

“I’ve done a lot of interviews and Ann was the best by far. Using golf as a metaphor, she cleverly intertwined her questioning to get me to talk about many aspects of my life as well as my passion for golf.”

Amy Grant, 2000

“Ann has walked more golf courses with pros and would-be golfers than any other woman I know. She continues to promote the game by highlighting the personal side of the people who love it.”

While my great friend Ann Liguori could certainly master any facet of the business - and she has - there is no clearer example of her massive abilities than to take in one of her countless high-level interviews. Her reservoir of superstar guests through the years would make Jimmy Kimmel envious… Her career has been a massive testament to a never give up spirit, an enterprising lesson in creating avenues to succeed in a business that oftentimes presents nothing but deadend streets. Typical of her entrepreneurial ways, she has not only created shows, she has served as executive producer, sold the advertising, and distributed her content to national broadcast outlets!

Rush’s Alex Lifeson Isn’t Motivated to Play Music After Neil Peart’s Death

Rolling Stone Magazine, By: Andy Greene

It’s been five months since the death of Neil Peart, and Rush guitarist Alex Lifeson says that he has yet to find comfort in music. “It’s been difficult,” he told sports journalist Ann Liguori on her show Talkin’ Golf. “After Neil passed in January, I’ve played very little guitar. I just don’t feel inspired and motivated.”

Rush fans have speculated that Lifeson and Rush frontman Geddy Lee might find a way to carry on the band’s legacy after Peart’s death, but the guitarist says they aren’t at that point yet.
