Apart from his TV job, he is also an author who has written a book on the life of Keith Jones. The book which was published by Middle Atlantic Press in 2006 is about the American skater Keith Jones and is titled Jonesy: Put Your Head down and Skate. In order to find out more about his life, work and career, net worth etc. you can read his biography on the wiki sites in different websites like IMDB and Wikipedia.

Apart from that, he is a very good golf player and is also an active member at the “You Can Play” organizational campaign whose purpose is to avoid the homophobia in sports. He is most popular for hosting the shows like Sports Center and Baseball Tonight and also started a trend on Twitter as #Bucciovertimechallenge in 2012. This was during the NHL Playoffs, in 2012. His popularity along with his salary raised with the TV shows and he also delivered live match reviews from the pitch in different occasions. Those kinds of things made him popular on the media with his fan following increasing considerably. You can see that on his Instagram and Twitter accounts where he has a large number of fans.

John was born on the 27th of January, 1966 in the Allegheny General Hospital, which is located on the northern site of Pittsburg, Pennsylvania, United States of America. Born in a middle class working family as the eldest of three children; his father Ronnie had a delivery business and his mother owned a small bakery shop in the local town. He was raised in his parents’ house in Indiana and was enrolled at the local school. As a child, he was not very confident and open and often stumbled in his class; which did not particularly boost his self-confidence.

Later, his father changed business and thus the family moved to Steubenville, Ohio; when he was 11 years of age. There he studied at the Steubenville Catholic Central High School where he took part actively in science projects, and was very good in class. In order to boost his confidence level his parents put him in drama class which was a big step for him. Apart from studies he also took part in sports and other extra-curricular; especially hosting and announcing. Wanting to become a media person, he studied Telecommunications at Heidelberg College, and majored in Communications and Theater Arts.

With a height of 5 feet and 9 inches, John has a very slim body type and despite the search, there aren’t any shirtless pictures of his on the media. Also there is not much information regarding his girlfriends and affairs; and seems like he has a low profile social life. Despite many people have concluded him to be sexually gay, he has openly denied those accusations. Rumors suggest that he has an Italian girlfriend but it is not sure whether they are married yet or have already been divorced. Thus there is no news regarding his wife or children; that is if he has any.
