Summerall, one of the iconic voices in NFL broadcast history has died. He was 82.
In 1964, Summerall started calling games at CBS, eventually becoming a play-by-play guy 10 years later. He was also part of CBS’s coverage of the PGA Tour, including the Masters and U.S. Open tennis.When CBS lost its NFL deal after the 1993 season, Summerall switched to Fox and called NFL games with John Madden.
Before heading into the broadcast booth, Summerall played 10 NFL seasons (1952-61) with the Chicago Cardinals and New York Giants.
Rest in peace Mr. Summerall.
