IBKÜL is pleased to announce our partnership with Ann Liguori, who will be representing the brand both on and off the golf course and tennis courts.
Ann is a leader and trailblazer in sports broadcasting as President of Ann Liguori Productions, Inc., an award-winning sports talk show host, public speaker, broadcaster, journalist, author, and producer. Ann was the first woman to host her own sports talk show on WFAN-NY with her “Hey Liguori, What’s the Story?” call-in sports show. The show started the first weekend WFAN went on the air and continued weekly for over 25 years. She hosts the award-winning “Talking Golf” on Sunday mornings on WFAN in the spring and summer and the weekly, award-winning “Sports Innerview” radio show on NPR’s WLIW 88.3 FM. And Ann manages her extensive archives of “Sports Innerview" cable shows, a treasure chest of over 600 interviews Ann has done with top legends in sports, that aired weekly for 17 years.
“Having Ann join our team is exciting,” says Jamie Handler, President, IBKÜL. “Ann is a pioneer in the sports radio and cable industry, and we’re honored that she loves our line and will showcase it at many of her outings, appearances, tournaments and travels. Ann connects with golfers and tennis players every day in addition to influencers and celebrities, and we know she will share the good news about our innovative clothing.”
Ann was also the first woman to host her own show on The Golf Channel. “Conversations with Ann Liguori” featured interviews with many A-list celebrities and the show aired weekly, prime-time, in the early days of The Golf Channel. Ann’s book A Passion for Golf, Celebrity Musings about the Game, features the behind-the-scenes stories about the show and Ann’s interviews.
Ann also hosts and organizes the Ann Liguori Foundation Charity Golf Classic every year in The Hamptons to raise money and awareness for cancer research. This year’s charity tourney will take place on October 7 at the Maidstone Club in East Hampton, N.Y.
When asked about working with IBKÜL, Ann said: “I’m honored to be working with such a forward-thinking company in active wear. They have made great strides in the five years they’ve been in existence and their success story is a testament to the knowledge and experience of Jamie Handler and his team, the quality of the fabric, and the beautiful colors and styles. IBKÜL is really the future of active wear!”
IBKÜL’s intelligent moisture-sensing fabric combines with your body’s perspiration to create a cooling thermal reaction, so you stay comfortable and odor-free on hot and humid days. The clothing also features UPF 50+ sun protection to combat harmful UVA and UVB rays.
Ann continues to share photos on her Instagram page (theannliguori), Facebook fan page (Ann Liguori), Linkedin (Ann Liguori) and Twitter (@annliguori) of her wearing IBKÜL apparel, playing golf and tennis, boating, hosting shows, covering golf tournaments and/or having lunch with the girls.
We think she looks amazing in our IBKÜL gear. She said in her caption: “It’s like Christmas day every time IBKÜL apparel arrives. Love the fabric, colors, styles.”
IBKÜL is extremely fortunate to have Ann as part of the team, as she works with other select brands such as Dune Jewelry, with her own jewelry collaboration, the Hamptons Rope Collection and Chillax’n Wellness Products.
The entire team at IBKÜL looks forward to her creativity and experience as she represents our brand.
