Kurt Warner

Kurt Warner returns in 2016 for a third season on the Westwood One crew as an analyst on select Monday Night Football broadcasts and as a contributor to the Thursday Night Football pregame show.

The first chapter of Warner’s tale was written in 1999, when he defied logic by emerging from obscurity to lead the St. Louis Rams to a victory in Super Bowl XXXIV.  In that same year, Warner was named the NFL and Super Bowl Most Valuable Player. For the next two years Kurt continued to be a dominant force in the NFL as the ringleader of what became known as the “Greatest Show on Turf.” He led the Rams to two additional playoff appearances – including another Super Bowl – and received Pro Bowl honors for three consecutive years (1999-2001). He also was one of a few NFL players to be recognized with multiple NFL MVP awards, receiving his second after the 2001 season.

After suffering from injuries and watching from the sideline, Warner was released by the Rams in 2004 and signed a one-year contract with the New York Giants.  When he was signed by the Arizona Cardinals in 2005, most football experts expected him to have an unceremonious end to his career.  However, two seasons later the veteran signal caller battled through an elbow injury to begin his renaissance with a passer rating of 89.9.  In 2008, he led the Cardinals to their first ever Super Bowl berth, was voted to his fourth Pro Bowl, and surpassed several Cardinals’ franchise records including touchdowns, attempts, completions, completion percentage and passer rating.

Arguably at his best in the postseason, Warner earned several NFL career postseason records; including passing yards per game, career completion percentage, yards per attempt. Owner of the top three passing performances in Super Bowl history (414 yards, 377, 365), Warner has the second-most career Super Bowl passing yards with 1,156.

After a record-setting 12-year career, Warner retired from the NFL following the 2009 season. His post-NFL career has been anything but relaxing. Warner often captivates crowds as a motivational speaker, and has also transitioned his on-field knowledge to broadcasting as an analyst with the NFL Network and Monday Night Football on Westwood One. In 2010 he joined the cast of Dancing with the Stars Season 11, finishing fifth thanks to his charm, competitive spirit and growing fan base. In 2013, Kurt hosted a new reality series “The Moment” on USA Network in which he took men and women on a life-changing journey by giving them a second chance at a career-path they never dreamed possible. With his legendary stockboy to MVP story, Warner was a fitting choice to host this inspirational series.

Also in 2013, Warner was nominated for a Sports Emmy Award as Outstanding Studio Analyst for his work on NFL Network.  For his role on “The Moment”, Kurt was nominated for the Critics’ Choice Television Award for Best Reality Host.

In 2012, Kurt and Brenda founded Treasure House, a Christian-based supported living community for young adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities.  Treasure House will offer an affordable residential opportunity to cultivate independence with the appropriate resources.  The first community will open in the Phoenix, AZ area in 2015, with a vision to expand to other communities. www.treasurehouse.org

Warner’s off-field accolades include the Walter Payton NFL Man of the Year, The Good Guy Award from the Pro Football Writers Association, USA WEEKEND’s Most Caring Athlete, ABC World News Person of the Week, Forbes Magazine’s America’s Most-Liked Sports Figure, Sports Illustrated’s Best Role Model and the Bart Starr Award.

Kurt Warner lives in Arizona with his wife Brenda and seven children: Zachary, Jesse Jo, Kade, Jada Jo, Elijah, and twins Sienna and Sierra.
