Broadcasting career

The Best Damn Sports Show Period and MLB Network

Rose is known as one of the hosts of The Best Damn Sports Show Period, on Fox Sports Net. Except for a brief period in 2004 and 2005, Rose hosted the show from its inception in 2001. Rose has also hosted the poker show Million Dollar Challenge. Rose currently works as a studio host for MLB Network (beginning on April 5, 2010).[1] He hosts Intentional Talk with Kevin Millar.

Fox Sports

In addition, he is a play-by-play announcer for Fox's coverage of the NFL and MLB. In 2006, he did Gamebreaks for the NFL coverage while Joe Buck and Curt Menefee hosted the studio coverage from the game site. He was the studio host for Fox's BCS coverage.

In 2007, he was the #7 play-by-play announcer for Fox's coverage of the NFL. A year later, he was demoted to #8 play-by-play but promoted again to #7 in 2009. On Sunday, November 8, 2009, Rose did Gamebreaks for the NFL on Fox while the Fox NFL Sunday crew did the pregame show from Bagram Airfield in Afghanistan. Trent Green and John Lynch were among the analysts who worked with Rose.

During the 2010 Major League Baseball season he hosted The Cheap Seats.

Rose has been criticized for appearing to be too friendly[2] with players he has interviewed during Fox's baseball coverage. For example during the 2009 World Series, Rose referred to Derek Jeter of the New York Yankees as "Jeets". One year later during the World Series, Rose referred to both Brian Wilson and Tim Lincecum of the San Francisco Giants as "his friends". Kevin Millar and Chris Rose on MLB Network both jokingly criticize each other for what they are wearing (vertical striped shirt, sleeves, hair, etc.)
