Master of Ceremonies | Jim Nantz

Bill Mitchell

Sacred Heart welcomes CBS Television Network sportscaster Jim Nantz, dear friend to honoree Bill Mitchell, to serve as master of ceremonies at the 2018 Discovery Gala. Nantz, who joined CBS in 1985, is a three-time Emmy Award winner and five-time National Sportscaster of the Year.

Nantz teamed with Houston Methodist Hospital at the Texas Medical Center to create the Nantz National Alzheimer Center (NNAC). The NNAC is dedicated to funding innovative diagnostic discoveries for early and accurate detection of Alzheimer’s disease. Nantz’s father, Jim Nantz, Jr., suffered from the ravages of Alzheimer’s disease and Nantz chronicled his father’s story in the instant New York Times bestseller, Always By My Side. The foreword of the book was written by one of his father figures and dear friend, former President George H.W. Bush.

Nantz, along with wine industry veteran Peter Deutsch, CEO of Deutsch Family Wine & Spirits, formed the Deutsch Nantz Alliance to produce the artisanal Sonoma fine wine, The Calling.
