by Ryan Bower, Assistant Director of Public Relations

Chris Broussard, one of ESPN’s top NBA analysts, will speak at Cedarville University’s chapel service at 10 a.m. on Wednesday, March 16, in the Jeremiah Chapel.

An internationally known sports analyst, Broussard regularly appears on a variety of ESPN shows such as “Outside the Lines,” “First Take” and the network’s flagship program, “SportsCenter.”

Broussard is also the founder of a men’s movement called K.I.N.G., which stands for Knowledge, Inspiration and Nurture through God. K.I.N.G. is a nondenominational movement that seeks to unite true Bible-believing Christian men across all denominational lines.

A former writer for the New York Times, Broussard has also authored several books and is a frequent speaker at churches, colleges, high schools, charitable fundraisers and youth-related events.

He has also been recognized for his work with Big Brothers Big Sisters of Greater Flint (Mich.), where Mayor Dayne Walling issued a public proclamation declaring September 17, 2010, “Chris Broussard Day.’’

In 1997, Broussard was named as an African-American Man of Achievement by Bright Star Baptist Church in Cleveland, Ohio.

A 1990 graduate of Oberlin College, Broussard now resides in New Jersey with his wife. Crystal, and their daughters, Alexis and Noelle.
