Lee Moore is the senior most member of the Celebrity Players Golf Tour (CPGT) staff. He brings over 35 years of experience in sportscasting and a 20-year background in public relations, planning and execution of golf tournaments across the United States.
Lee’s broadcast career started fresh out of high school while serving in the United States Air Force. His posts took him from McGuire Air Force Base in New Jersey to Itazuke Air Base in Japan. From editing the sports section of the Stars and Stripes newspaper to sportscasting on the Armed Forces Network, Lee was a clear viewer and reader favorite.
After graduation from Morehead State University, Lee moved to eastern North Carolina and became sports director for WCTI-TV. He remained at the station from 1971 to 1989. He was twice named North Carolina Television Sportscaster of the Year.
Lee’s introduction to golf tournaments came in 1991 when he began working for several tours as Director of Public Relations. His work included hosting several television productions that reached more than 40,000,000 homes nationwide. His background and contacts from his involvement with the former Celebrity Players Tour will serve as a strong foundation with which to launch the Celebrity Players Golf Tour in 2014.
Lee and his wife Pinkie live in eastern North Carolina. They are proud parents of two daughters, Susan and Martha.
