Drebber was born in Guam, Mariana Islands. Since 1978, he was a play-by-play, analyst, reporter, writer, and producer, covering eight Olympic, Pan American and Goodwill Games as well as world championships in 25 different sports including, aerobics, Drag boat racing, curling, cycling, and Nordic Events, for TNT, ESPN, ABC, CBS, and Public Broadcasting Service|PBS.
Drebber got his start as a broadcaster and sports reporter by providing commentary over the public address system at the Trexlertown Velodrome in the mid-1970s. As a rider there, his nickname was "Dribbles". It was soon discovered that he was a far better announcer than rider and his announcing style quickly became very popular at Trexlertown, because he knew the sport and the riders very well and had a keen sense of humor.
