Greek American sportscaster Spero Dedes' love life still evinces the norms and traditions of his Greek heritage from which he had deviated in the process of searching for his identity in the world.
Sports anchoring is not a profession of a joke. One needs extreme dedication and passion for it. And speaking about dedication, anchor Spero Dedes’ way of engaging his audiences premier to the start of the game proves it all. He is a Greek-American sportscaster who currently announces for NFL and CBS. Severely interested in this field from a very young age of his life, Dedes used to stay awake for the whole night just to watch his favorite Knicks play in NBA.
On 2005, his career started to flourish at the young age of 26 when he joined NBA team LA Lakers as an announcer. The Paramus New Jersey native, who had also anchored for New York Knicks and NFL Network before, is now a CBS sportscaster after 6 years on his previous jobs.

More On Spero Dedes Age, Family, Bio, Net Worth, Height
To make him a successful man he is today, Spero's parents have put up lots of effort. That's why he is accustomed to his background-where he came from- and is working even harder so that his future generations can get inspired from him. When he is free, he enjoys getting together with his family and friends at his family restaurant.
Dedes was born on 27th February 1979 in Paramus New Jersey. Before joining Fordham University, he went to Paramus High School. His father was just 18 when he left Greece in 1965 and emigrated to the United States empty-handed. His parents eventually settled in the states but gave him insight on Greek culture and language.
When he first told his parents about his passion for journalism and his desire to go to college to grab a degree in journalism, they didn't know how to react. They had thought that he would one day handle their family business. His father was the owner of a diner in New Jersey and it was the business he was expected to lead.
His father eventually agreed to send him to Fordham University in New York if he majored in business management and minored in broadcasting. He went to the college and performed so weak in the math classes that he decided to major in broadcasting.
As of now, Spero has been increasing his $2 million net worth, earning a handsome salary of around $300,000 annually as a sportscaster. He looks tall and fit; the precise information regarding his height hasn’t been disclosed.
