  • Frank Chirkinian Remembered

    Former CBS Sports Producer Frank Chirkinian passed away Friday at the age of 84 after battling cancer. In N.Y., Richard Goldstein wrote Chirkinian "defined televised golf as the innovative executive producer and director for CBS's coverage of the Masters tournament." Chirkinian first oversaw The Masters in '59, when televised golf was a "black-and-white affair with bulky stationary cameras." But he "transformed it into an imaginative spectacle, using more than two dozen mobile cameras as well as a camera in a blimp along with split screens showing two golfers putting at the same time." He "cut briskly from hole to hole," he "showed his audience where the leaders stood in relation to par as play progressed, not simply their total score, and he placed microphones on the greens to pick up chatter between the golfers and their caddies."
