Larry Nuber announced his first race at Fremont Speedway at the age of six. He told then promoter Joe Stelter that some day he would announce the Indianapolis 500 – he did.

Nuber joined the new ESPN network in 1979 for their first motor sports telecast.  Nuber and Bob Jenkins called the USAC race at Salem Speedway in Indiana.  In 1984, Nuber helped start SpeedWeek on ESPN, a weekly auto racing news program. He co-hosted the show until 1989.  During his years with the network, he also announced Formula One and Thursday night "Thunder" USAC events.  t the 1985 Southern 500 at Darlington Raceway, Nuber made one of his most memorable calls when Bill Elliott won the race and became the first winner of the Winston Million.

In addition to his work with ESPN, Nuber also worked on TNN and CBS race broadcasts.  Nuber died in June of 2000.
