Greg is the older brother of television journalist and sportscaster Bryant Gumbel (best known for his 15-year stint on NBC's The Today Show).

Following CBS's loss of the NFL and Major League Baseball broadcasting contracts, Gumbel moved to NBC (1994), though he eventually returned to CBS, where his first major assignment upon his return was to serve as studio host for the network's coverage of college basketball. Gumbel progressed to announcing for such other coverage as The NFL Today and even returning to the broadcast booth as the #2 play-by-play man, alongside color commentator and former football player Dan Dierdorf until Dierdorf retired after the 2013-14 NFL season.
