Born in Georgia, he was raised in Jacksonville. Hubert's list of assignments has been stunning, including 10 Olympics, 32 Super Bowls, 25 baseball World Series, 30 NCAA basketball Final Fours, 9 Wimbledon tennis championships, 22 Kentucky Derbies, 23 Daytona 500s, 25 different college football bowls and 40 Masters plus 50 other major golf championships.

Hubert has interviewed a majority of the world's prominent athletic figures of the past half century. His most unforgettable events were the 1972 Munich Olympics, where modern terrorism was born; the Miracle on Ice hockey game at the 1980 Lake Placid Olympics; and the 1989 World Series that was interrupted by a 7.0 earthquake in San Francisco.
