  Color commentator - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
A color (or colour) commentator, sometimes known as a color analyst, is a member of the broadcasting team for a sporting event who assists the play-by-play announcer by filling in any time when play is not in progress.
The color commentator provides expert analysis and background information, such as statistics, strategy and injury reports, on the teams and athletes, and occasionally light humor.
Some of the notable color commentators appear on these broadcast were General Al Gray (Ret.), former Commandant of the United States Marine Corps, and Col. Harry Summers, noted military analyst.

 Can A Man Who Has A Problem With People Of Color Be A Color Commentator On 'Monday Night Football'?
He recently auditioned for a job as color commentator on ABC-TV's "Monday Night Football." The tryout followed weeks of self-promotion by the self-styled "truth detector" to the millions who listen daily to his syndicated radio show on about 600 stations.
What is clear is that his expressed views on racial matters--from the spiteful to the sophomoric--would make him an odd color commentator.
When all is said and done, the athletes are the key players on "Monday Night Football." It would be great to know how they'd feel about a color man who seems to have trouble with people of color.

He accused these people of "SearchEnginebombing," an offshoot of e-mail bombing, that was cluttering the web/USENET with negative comments about him, so a search engine would find more of them than his own postings.

 Orel Hershiser: Star Color Commentator (for ESPN!) - The Forum at NYYFans.com
He is confident, funny, has many stories that are actually both relevant and interesting, engages his cohost in good conversation (even Chris Berman), knows a ton about baseball, and best of all is extremely insightful about the plays going on currently in the game and the reasons for them (especially pitching-wise).
He was good, but his 15 minute explanation of how to give signs with a runner on second was tedious, I thought he was going to go on forever.
Honestly, Orel Hershiser is the best national tv baseball color commentator I have heard in at least a few years.
