Gautam Bhimani is a commentator with ESPN-STAR Sports and adds that much needed dash of humour to serious cricket discussions. Gautam has done his Bachelor's in Mass Communication from Missourie State University, U.S.A. He started his professional career in media as a copywriter in JWT- J. Walter Thomson, where he worked for six years. A quiz freak, he took part in the prestigious all-India Brand Equity Quiz and came third. He won a trip to Singapore where he visited prominent personalities from ESPNSTAR SPORTS
and that is how his association with the sports channel began.
Raymond Hume, ESPN-Star Cricket Director offered the job with the channel despite him never being on TV before. He started working as a backroom researcher for Harsha Online, a show hosted by renowned commentator Harsha Bhogle
. And then when India toured Zimbabwe in 2001, he got his first chance to come in front of the television camera. His light-hearted style of reporting brought a different kind of freshness to the commentary box. Gautam was always seen having a gala time at beach sides or even challenging the great Wasim Akram for a game of cricket.
