Dave Revsine has served as BTN’s lead studio host for a wide array of programming since the network’s inception and was its first on-air hire. When the network launched on August 30, 2007, Revsine’s words were the first spoken: “Eleven schools, 252 varsity teams, one great network to cover it all. Welcome to the Big Ten Network, your ultimate source for Big Ten sports, featuring the games, passion and tradition of the nation’s foremost athletic conference.”
Revsine is the primary anchor for Big Ten Football Saturday and the Big Ten Tip-Off Show. He also co-hosts studio shows such as Big Ten Football and Beyond, BTN Live and Big Ten Basketball and Beyond.

He is the author of the New York Times bestselling book The Opening Kickoff: The Tumultuous Birth of a Football Nation, which tells the story of the early years of college football.
Revsine came to BTN from ESPN, where he spent 11 years in a variety of capacities. Although known primarily as a college sports expert, Revsine’s versatility allowed him to fill nearly every role for the network, including anchoring SportsCenter and hosting studio coverage for a variety of sports, including two FIFA World Cups. He also was the host of ESPN Radio’s College GameDay for six years and hosted ESPN Radio’s coverage of several BCS Championship games and also had an extensive role in college basketball.
