The History and Evolution Of NFL Broadcasting

In the Beginning

  • First Game was shot on October 22, 1939

  • National Broadcasting Company

  • Only 8 people were needed for the broadcast

  • "I’d sit with my chin on the rail in the mezzanine, and the camera was over my shoulder," remembered Walz. "I did my own spotting, and when the play moved up and down the field, on punts or kickoffs, I’d point to tell the cameraman what I’d be talking about.”

Skip Walz

  • "It was a cloudy day, when the sun crept behind the stadium there wasn’t enough light for the cameras," according to Walz. "The picture would get darker and darker, and eventually it would go completely blank, and we’d revert to a radio broadcast." Such an occurrence would create a furor today, but in 1939 it was simply technology at its best.

Paving the Way
