These days, Warner Wolf is keeping a pretty low profile. He doesn’t have time to be doing nightly broadcasts like he once did, and who knows if he even has the capability of doing that? In addition, it could be that his style of delivery and broadcasting talents may not be exactly what the various networks of the modern era are looking for. Sports networks are certainly aware of how iconic he is, but that doesn’t necessarily mean that they are pining to have them as their star. Living out in Florida currently, Wolf does do the occasional fill in broadcast, but talking on camera isn’t something that he does as consistently as he once did.
Warner Wolf is just doing his thing, broadcasting, golfing, attending college courses – you know, standard activities for a man of his age. But regardless of what he’s doing, he certainly isn’t as well known as he once was. He probably knows how much he meant to the people of his era, but there was definitely a drawback that occurred in his popularity from the current generations. But that all changed when he received a mysterious text one evening is his home in Naples, Florida.
The text urged him to watch a certain scene on a modern television drama show that he’d never heard of in his lifetime – This Is Us. Where did this show come from, and why was it so important that he watch it? The more he found out, the more intrigued he got, and very soon, he was receiving a lot more messages telling him to do the same thing.
The thing is, he was okay with keeping under the radar. He didn’t need people to come out and say, “We love you, Warner!” He’s a humble man, and he was grateful for what he had. But just because someone doesn’t need appreciation, or ask for it – that doesn’t mean that we shouldn’t give it to them.
