America’s Best Racing (ABR), a multimedia fan-development and awareness-building platform designed to increase the profile and visibility of North America’s best Thoroughbred racing events with a primary focus on the sport’s lifestyle and competition, announced that Tabitha Lipkin and Bram Weinstein will co-host the inaugural America’s Best Racing Fan Choice Awards Show on Thursday, Dec. 19, 2019 at 8 p.m. ET at www.AmericasBestRacing.net.
Lipkin, an Emmy-award winner for the travel show “Private Islands,” is currently a weekend sports anchor and reporter at Fox 5 San Diego. Lipkin got her start working with the best comedians in the industry, as she had internships with both “Conan” on TBS, and “The Colbert Report” on Comedy Central before transitioning to work in front of the camera. She is a dive master who has traveled all over the world speaking on ocean conservation and encouraging women to dive. In 2019, she moderated a panel at the United Nations for the International Day of Sport for Development and Peace. She has covered racing at Del Mar Thoroughbred Club and also been featured in an America’s Best Racing “Wired” video at the 2017 Breeders’ Cup World Championships.
Weinstein's on-air career has spanned over a quarter-century. He currently hosts "The Bram Weinstein Show" on ESPN 630 The Sports Capitol in his hometown of Washington, D.C. Bram also hosts "The Winner's Circle" podcast/radio show on the SB Nation Radio Network for America's Best Racing. Bram owns Ampire Media, a podcast production company based in the Washington, D.C. metro area which produces a variety of shows in the sports and lifestyle genre.
“We’re honored to have Tabitha and Bram co-host the inaugural Fan Choice Awards,” America's Best Racing President Stephen B. Panus said. “Tabitha and Bram are big fans and great ambassadors of our sport. And we’re so thankful for our many fans across the country who deserve to have their voices heard and votes counted. We strongly believe in empowering our passionate and avid fans and are excited about giving them a platform to exercise their fandom.”
The digital and social media-centric America’s Best Racing Fan Choice Awards will debut later this fall with voting open Nov. 6-20, shortly after the 2019 Breeders’ Cup World Championships.
Upon the conclusion of the voting process, ABR will produce, in conjunction with the New York Racing Association, a digital video show to unveil the winners of the America’s Best Racing Fan Choice Awards, which will air at AmericasBestRacing.net on Dec. 19 at 8 p.m. ET/ 5 p.m. PT, and subsequently will be aired on Fox Sports 2.
