Ep. 75: Pacers game emcee Kurt Streblow

Kurt Streblow is in his fifth season as an emcee for Pacers home games at Bankers Life Fieldhouse. This past week, he was invited to emcee several events at All-Star Weekend 2018 held in Los Angeles.

Streblow credits Pacers Vice President of Game Operations Dean Heaviland for not only hiring him years ago, but for also recommending him to the league to be one of several emcees across the 30-team league to contribute at the NBA’s featured annual event.

On Friday, he worked the Rising Stars practice that included Pacers center Domantas Sabonis. The next day, he hosted the Special Olympics Unified game and then later All-Star practice. In all, he spent six days in Los Angeles.

Remember, Indianapolis will host All-Star Weekend in 2021.
