You know celebrities don't really reveal about their personal life; however, they can't keep their private life away from public eyes for too long. We found out the 52-year-old sportscaster is currently single.
But Gus has not been single for too long, according to some reports; in fact, he was close to marriage, but something happened between the former couple and decided to split up.
According to an article published on SBNation, the 52-year-old was dating his ex-girlfriend, Joy Hooper. In an excerpt published on the article, Gus revealed his ex-girlfriend was a graduate in Fine Arts from Howard and earned her Master's Degree in Arts and Fine Arts from Penn State University.

Since it's clear by now, the 52-year-old star is still single, as he still recalls small things his ex-girlfriend used to do. Talking to one of the outlets, Gus revealed he enjoyed how Hooper used to pick out little things about him.
Adding more to his statement, the sportscaster said she was really good at picking small things about him, adding, he stressed why she was so good at it.
Apparently, Joy Hooper, after her Master's degree, started teaching at the same university where she got her master's degree from, which is Penn State. Gus described his ex-girlfriend 'a masterful actress and a teacher.'
So, to answer why she was good at picking up small things, Gus stressed: "actors are good at picking things up; they study human behavior to improve their craft."
Which makes sense, and we can't argue more on the topic. Sure Gus tried to use his touch of humor too. Adding, Johnson,52, said: "she was able to do those things, and do them well."
The sportscaster recalled a moment where Hooper had an honest discussion with him. Joy, with her serious face, told Gus, "you're doing a good job. But when you let that little black boy from Detroit out of his cage … Then you’ll be a superstar." And look at now, he sure is a superstar, which just proves she was a good reader and analyst, we suppose.
