Best Local Sports Anchor

Mark Johnson, KTVB

Mark Johnson relinquished his sports anchor position to become KTVB's news anchor more than a decade ago, but we aren't surprised to see him at the top of this category. Yes, he's Channel 7's news co-anchor, but just try to keep him from broadcasting from the sidelines of any Boise State football game. If there's any local angle to the Summer or Winter Olympics, you can bet your cleats Mark will be all over it. ktvb.com

2nd Place: Jay Tust, KTVB Channel 7—While Channel 7 has seen its share of sports broadcasters come and go, Jay Tust is among the best in Boise—second only to Mark Johnson, according to BW readers. He has solid insight, can recount the most obscure statistic at the drop of a helmet, and has an always-pleasant demeanor. ktvb.com

3rd Place: Tom Scott, KTVB Channel 7—If Boise has a sports broadcast dean, it's Tom Scott. He is the most knowledgeable sports historian in the Treasure Valley, and his contributions to KTVB's "Sunday Sports Extra" are always well worth staying up late for. ktvb.com
