He covered two National Football League teams (San Francisco 49ers, Oakland Raiders), two Major League Baseball teams (San Francisco Giants, Oakland Athletics), a National Hockey League team (San Jose Sharks), and a National Basketball Association team (Golden State Warriors), not to mention the major sports programs at the University of California, Stanford and other colleges in the area.

Inglis, a two-time Emmy Award winner, was there to witness and cover a lot of historic moments and legendary athletes.

He has a ton of great stories like those to share.
