ARMEN KETEYIAN NAMED FULL-TIME CORRESPONDENT FOR "60 MINUTES SPORTS," THE NEW SHOWTIME SPORTS(R) MAGAZINE FROM "60 MINUTES"

Award-winning CBS News and CBS Sports reporter Armen Keteyian will become a full-time correspondent for the new SHOWTIME Sports magazine 60 MINUTES SPORTS.

Jeff Fager, CBS News chairman and executive producer of 60 MINUTES, said in his announcement that Keteyian will also continue to contribute occasionally to CBS News daily broadcasts. "Armen is the perfect correspondent for our new program," said Fager, who is also the co-executive producer of 60 MINUTES SPORTS. "He has the reporting experience in news, sports and at 60 MINUTES to bring us high quality 60 MINUTES stories for the new SHOWTIME edition."

Few can equal Keteyian's decades of experience as a sports journalist, beginning in print as an investigative reporter at the most prestigious sports print magazine, up through network news and cable television sports assignments at the highest levels, including CBS Sports' THE NFL TODAY and 60 MINUTES. Expanding beyond sports, Keteyian reached a new level in his career as Chief Investigative Reporter for the CBS EVENING NEWS, where he was nominated five times and won three Emmy awards since joining the broadcast in 2006.

In addition to Keteyian, the monthly 60 MINUTES SPORTS will feature on-air talent from 60 MINUTES and CBS Sports. It will be produced by the same 60 MINUTES team that produces the CBS news magazine on Sundays and offer the same first-class investigations, interviews, features and profiles that have been the hallmark of 60 MINUTES for decades. The unique programming partnership between CBS News and CBS sister cable company, SHOWTIME, was announced last month and will debut on SHOWTIME in January 2013. 60 MINUTES SPORTS will be co-executive produced by Bill Owens, the Executive Editor of 60 MINUTES.

Keteyian, an 11-time Emmy award winner, was honored last year for his revealing story about personal information stored on resold copiers that can be mined by identity thieves. In September 2010 he won for "Rape in America: Justice Denied," a five-month 2009 investigation into the startling backlog of tens of thousands of rape kits. In 2008 he revealed the shockingly high suicide rates of veterans, another Emmy winner.

From December 1997 to March 2006, Keteyian was a special features reporter for CBS Sports in New York, where he roamed the sidelines during top NFL games and covered the league for THE NFL TODAY. He also regularly covered the NCAA Basketball Tournament and anchored the network's award-winning coverage of the Tour de France. During that period, through a special arrangement with HBO, he was also a featured correspondent for HBO Sports' magazine show "Real Sports with Bryant Gumbel."

In July of 2002, HBO Sports, as part of its highly acclaimed "Sports of the 20th Century" series, aired a documentary co-produced and co-written by Keteyian entitled "A City on Fire: The Story of the '68 Detroit Tigers."

Prior to joining CBS and HBO, Keteyian worked as a network correspondent for ABC News in New York for eight years (1989-97). During that time he wrote and reported more than 400 stories on a wide variety of sports-related issues for "World News Tonight with Peter Jennings," "Nightline," and other ABC News broadcasts. Prior to joining ABC News, Keteyian worked as a writer-reporter for Sports Illustrated in New York for seven years (1982-89), specializing in investigations. While there he reported on subjects ranging from corruption in college football and basketball, to sports gambling in America, to point shaving scandals, to the widening use of steroids in professional and amateur sports.

Keteyian has also written or co-written nine books including, Why You Crying, The New York Times bestselling autobiography of actor/comedian George Lopez. Among his previous books are: Money Players: Days and Nights Inside the New NBA, a critically acclaimed account of the rise of the NBA under David Stern; the New York Times bestseller Raw Recruits; and the autobiographies of baseball great Catfish Hunter and Hall of Fame linebacker Mike Singletary. Keteyian is currently writing a major book on college football for Doubleday expected to be published next year.

He began his career as a sports and feature writer in San Diego, where he was graduated cum laude from San Diego State University in 1976 with a bachelor's degree in journalism. Keteyian was a starting infielder on the university's baseball team. Born and raised in Michigan, he now lives with his wife Dede in New York City and Fairfield, CT.
