What have you been up to since Almost Live ended?

After Almost Live!, I hosted Portland's version of Evening Magazine for a year and a half, then moved to Los Angeles where I helped start a sports network called Fox Sports World (it's now the Fox Soccer Channel). Since 2000, I've lived and worked in Melbourne, Australia, where I cover world sports on TV, radio and in print. I hosted the Super Bowl telecast live on Australian television from 2002-2010 and co-hosted an American sports radio show called "Born in the USA." I write for a website, www.backpagelead.com.au and have my own blog, www.edwyatt.com.au. I'm married to Michelle, an Australian, and have a young son named Sam.

What was your favorite Almost Live sketch?

Impossible to pick one. My three favorite sketches are:

1."Can I See Jill?" -- a great conversation piece between John Keister and Joe Guppy

2."Roscoe's Rug Emporium" with Pat Cashman

3."Frenetic Pace" -- a goofy little sketch I wrote that actually won an Emmy.

What is your best Almost Live memory?

Honestly, the best memories are just working and laughing with such a creative, passionate and talented group of people...and helping Ralph Bevins shoot an interview with Patsy Kensit (those under 35, please Google her) .
