Colt Knost Q&A on his growing TV role: ‘I honestly feel like this is what I was meant to do’

To borrow a phrase from his own vernacular, Colt Knost is about to “get amongst it” with CBS Sports. The 36-year-old former PGA Tour pro went from a part-time role last year to a full-time gig beginning this week at the Farmers Insurance Open. Knost, who also co-hosts the Sirius/XM Radio show “Gravy and The Sleaze,” with co-host Drew Stoltz, has become golf’s latest media darling.

“He has the perfect blend of humility with his self-deprecating humor combined with a true knowledge of the game, and his resume speaks to that being a U.S. Amateur champion and Walker Cupper,” Sellers Shy, lead producer at CBS, said of Knost. “Plus, he has an incredible relationship with today’s players.”

Perhaps no commentator has his pulse on the Tour better than Knost – check out his podcast Sub Par (also with Stoltz) if you haven’t already. He also continues a youth movement at CBS that began with the remaking of its broadcast team a few years. Expect him to become one of the faces of CBS’s golf coverage for years to come.

“I honestly feel like this is what I was meant to do,” Knost said. “Playing on Tour for eight years was just the thing that transferred me into being what I’m supposed to be and that’s being on TV.”
