Steve Levy

Steve Levy (born March 12, 1965) is currently a journalist for ESPN. Before working for ESPN, he worked in New York for WFAN. At ESPN, he usually works on "SportsCenter", and he covered NHL regular season and playoff games before the network lost the rights to televise the league's games. He also previously covered the network's college football coverage for four seasons.

Levy's NHL broadcasting career is very significant. His nickname is "Mr. Overtime", as he has called the three longest televised games in NHL history, all of which have been playoff games — a 1996 game between the Pittsburgh Penguins and the Washington Capitals that went four overtimes (third longest); a 2000 contest that also featured the Penguins, this time playing the Philadelphia Flyers, which went five overtimes (the longest); and a 2003 matchup between the Mighty Ducks of Anaheim and the Dallas Stars, which also went five overtimes, and lasted six hours (second longest). The only two games to go longer took place before the era of television.

Levy was a 1987 graduate of the State University of New York at Oswego. He also attended John F. Kennedy High School (Bellmore). He is also known for leaving fellow co-anchor Keith Olbermann in stitches when, due to a teleprompter typo, he said "bulging dick" instead of "bulging disk".cite news
