OK, we did hear that marriage ended between the two TV broadcasters. We just weren’t sure how recently. Until CBS issued this press release this afternoon:
CBS Sports’ Lesley Visser will marry international businessman Bob Kanuth at Appleton Chapel on the campus of Harvard University in Cambridge, Mass. on Saturday.
Visser is a pioneer for women in sports broadcasting and the most highly acclaimed female sportscaster of all-time. She was recognized by the Professional Football Hall of Fame in 2006 as the only woman to receive the Pete Rozelle Radio and Television Award.
Kanuth, a highly successful businessman in the real estate and finance industry, was the captain and Most Valuable Player of the 1969 Harvard Crimson basketball team.
Among the many guests from the business, sports and media worlds will include CBS President & CEO Leslie Moonves and his wife, Julie Chen, host of CBS show “The Talk,” former New York Yankees first baseman Tino Martinez; Olympic figure skater Nancy Kerrigan; CBS Sports golf analyst Nick Faldo; Boston Celtics owner Steve Pagliuca; AutoNation CEO Michael Jackson; University of Louisville basketball head coach Rick Pitino, who introduced the couple; and CBS Sports college basketball analyst Bill Raftery. The couple will honeymoon in Paris and Provence, France.
Visser’s Wikipedia page says she was married to sportscaster Dick Stockton, a longtime broadcaster in Boston who works for Fox and Turner Sports, from 1983 to 2010.
