It’s the American Ninja Warrior host’s birthday!
Guess what today is? It’s Matt Iseman’s birthday! The intrepid Matt has been the voice of American Ninja Warrior since season two. He’s called thousands of runs, cheered for hundreds of Ninjas, and has never allowed his enthusiasm to wane.
Executive Producer Arthur Smith previously told us, “I’m a huge Matt Iseman fan. I believed in him right from the very beginning. Having worked in sports and entertainment for all these years, there are very, very few people who can do play-by-play and have the composure and be eloquent and have all those skills. Matt has that, and he’s funny and he’s enthusiastic. So the combination of smarts and enthusiasm was the perfect combination of what we wanted Ninja to be.”
Doctor, comedian, host extraordinaire, what can’t he do? In honor of Matt’s birthday, let’s revisit just a couple of times he showed us why we adore him so much up in the Ninja Warrior host tower.
