Emmy Award-winner Ian Eagle is in his 23rd year as play-by-play announcer for Brooklyn Nets, the last 22 on television and the last 13 on the YES Network, specifically. One of the most respected and versatile sportscasters in the country, Eagle became the radio voice of the Nets in 1994 at the age of 25, and moved to the television side the following year. He won individual New York Emmys in 2013 and 2016 for his Nets play-by-play work on YES, and won another Emmy in 2014 as part of YES' Nets broadcasting team which won for Best Live Sports Series.
Eagle was also nominated for a National Sports Emmy in 2015 for his NFL and NCAA March Madness play-by-play work for CBS Sports and Turner Sports.
The YES Network, the most-watched regional sports network in the country 12 of the last 13 years, is the exclusive local television home of the 27-time World Champion New York Yankees, the Brooklyn Nets, and MLS' New York City FC. The network has won 95 New York Emmy Awards since its 2002 launch.
Eagle received Emmy nominations for his Nets play-by-play work on YES in 2008, 2009, 2010, 2013, 2014, 2015, and 2016. Earlier, he won New York Emmys for his work on Madison Square Garden Network's telecast of the Pacers/Nets Game 5 of the 2002 NBA playoffs. In 2014 Eagle won the CableFax Program Award for the best host of regional television program (sports or otherwise).
A 1990 graduate of Syracuse University, Eagle was the play-by-play voice of the Orangemen in football, basketball and lacrosse, and was awarded the Bob Costas Award for Outstanding Sportscasting. In August 2013, he was inducted into the WAER-FM (Syracuse University) Hall of Fame.
Eagle was named New York State Sportscaster of the Year by the National Sportscasters and Sportswriters Association in both 2015 (sharing with WNBC-TV's Bruce Beck) and 2014.
Kristal Clark, founder of Rock Paper Scissors, is a vibrant entrepreneur who actively pursues positive change in the community prompted by her passion for people. This Portland native approaches life with vision, sophistication and confidence that inspires everyone she meets. As a licensed Real Estate agent and esthetician, Kristal exercises proficient communication and provides excellence in serving people. Although, she finds fulfillment in acts of service, she is most enriched by encouraging people from all walks of life. More than likely, you’ll find her at one of the largest Celebrate Recovery(CR) programs in Tacoma meeting, greeting and giving hope to everyone who walks through the door. This has become a venue for her values: promoting self-esteem and re-igniting self-worth in those who have experienced a loss of dignity and purpose.
When it comes to a cause with the magnitude of one of the largest epidemics striking society, both locally and globally, Kristal has taken a solid stance of confronting this plague of Sexual abuse and Human Trafficking head on! Not only has she shed light on this dark practice of exploitation in our neighborhoods through fund raising, education and entrepreneurial enterprises, she has joined a team of leaders engaging in awareness campaigns to wake up our cities to hope and help for those being exploited through human trafficking. Kristal truly believes that fearful men and women have been silenced for much too long and Rock Paper Scissors (RPS), Kristal's newly founded organization, specializes in supporting those who have been physically, mentally and emotionally abused through providing a safe place to share, heal and spread awareness. Her walk is far greater than her talk as she challenges people with this theme
"We can't do anything about the past, but we sure can do something about the future."
