Tiki Barber

Tiki Barber is a sports broadcaster, author, and former American football running back for the New York Giants. He is the identical twin brother of Ronde Barber, a cornerback who plays for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Barber was a correspondent on NBC's 4th hour of The Today Show with Ann Curry and Hoda Kotb. He retired from the NFL at the end of the 2006 NFL postseason as the franchise's all-time rushing and reception leader. On February 13, 2007, he was formally introduced as a correspondent for NBC's Today Show and Football Night in America/Sunday Night Football.

Tiki Barber, the retired all-pro running back, gives a Clinton School lecture on "Sports and Public Service." After his retirement in 2006, Barber published his memoir "Tiki: My Life and the Game Beyond," about his life and experiences in the NFL. Still the Giants' all-time leading rusher, Barber is currently pursuing a broadcasting career, serving as a commentator for NBC’s "Today Show," among other duties. On November 13, Barber released his second book entitled, "Tiki Barber’s Pure Hard Workout," about his extensive weight lifting regiment.
