// Veteran sports director to appear on "No Relation"

SWP will dedicate next week's episode of "No Relation" to an interview with long-time CBS Sports director Bob Fishman. The interview, to be conducted by "No Relation" host and producer Scott Winer, will be recorded early next week follow Fishman's work on Saturday night's AFC Divisional Playoff Game.

Fishman, an 11-time Emmy Award winner who joined CBS News in 1972 as a production assistant, is widely regarded as one of the best directors in sports television history.

Among his many credits, Fishman has directed multiple years of the NCAA Men's Basketball Championship, Final Four, Daytona 500, AFC Divisional Playoffs, U.S. Open Tennis Championships, World Series, American League Championship Series, Olympic Figure Skating, Belmont Stakes, SEC Football Championship, Army-Navy Game and the 1998 Opening Ceremony in Nagano.

He has directed some of the most memorable sports moments of the last 30 years, including North Carolina State's 1983 National Championship win over Houston, Joe Carter's game-winning homerun in the 1993 World Series, Tonya Harding's dramatic meltdown in the 1994 Winter Olympics and the infamous fistfight between Donnie Allison and Cale Yarborough at the 1979 Daytona 500.
