Brent Musburger on His Icononic Run in Sports Broadcasting

David Halberstam of the Sports Broadcast Journal has Musburger at number 3 in his top 50 network television personalities. Not surprising at all, Musburger has made a name for himself in this industry. In his first season calling games for the Oakland Raiders, Musburger has built a name for himself. He was the first network play-by-play announcer who broke traditional protocol by offering spicy opinions and analysis. “Brent is still not afraid to veer of course to address what is on his stream of consciousness.” Some believe he is up there with Bob Costas, among the most versatile network broadcasters ever. “Brent reached network highpoints for both play-by-play and studio work. He called NBA Finals, Final Fours and college football title games. From an NFL perspective, the Oregon native pioneered stimulating studio programming that fostered an appetite across the network landscape for popular pre and post game shows.”
