1993 Studio Ron Gant

Hobby is weight lifting: During his career he was considered to have the biggest arms in baseball.
Favorite sports announcer is Harry Kalas: Kalas was a longtime Phillies announcer. Gant would play for the Phillies later in his career.
Favorite player as a kid was Hank Aaron: Aaron tutored Gant on hitting during his time with the Braves.
Might have been a Navy Seal if he hadn’t been an athlete: Gant is a gun collector who was also interested in a career with a SWAT team.
Pet peeves are traffic and racism: Gant has said that part of why he idolized Aaron was his bravery in the face of racism during his pursuit of Babe Ruth’s home run record.
Where he is now: Co-anchor of Good Day Atlanta.
