Booth team deserves mention
Published March 25, 2013, Page 22
But wow … I can’t find a mention anywhere of [Dick] Enberg, [Billy] Packer and [Al] McGuire, the announce team that I would argue did as much, or more, to popularize the sport as any of the marketing, programming or NCAA executives you credit.
I know you distribute to those executives, but still, a mention of one of the best announce teams in our industry’s history would have been nice.
McGuire (no relation) is a former senior vice president of Golf Channel and at Turner Sports. He was producer at NBC Sports during the Enberg-Packer-McGuire years.
