For a lot of guys, Boom Gonzales's job is a dream come true. After all, nothing could make any sports fan happier than watching courtside games practically every single day—and actually doing it for a living.
But for "Hardball" co-host Boom Gonzales, it's just part of the daily grind. This Kapamilya sports commentator's career is firmly rooted on the hard court: he started as a reporter for the University Athletic Association of the Philippines (UAAP), keeping the entire nation covered as he reported on what's happening in the world of collegiate games.
Soon, he found himself in the ABS-CBN newsroom, as he became the anchor for "Gameday," delivering the latest sports-related news, athletic fun facts, and everything and anything related to the Philippine Basketball Association (PBA) and UAAP. The show aired on Balls Channel, a sports-oriented ABS-CBN cable channel.
At present, Boom Gonzales can be spotted on “Hardball,” a sports show that airs weekly on ANC. Watch him as he dissects play by plays and animatedly discusses everything that’s relevant to the field of sports together with veteran co-hosts Bill Velasco and Boom Sison. Need your weekly dose of sports news? There’s no need to play hard ball when ANC’s “Hardball” has your back.
