A behind the scenes look into a life in broadcast television that few will ever experience. This exciting memoir gives readers a priceless glimpse into one of the nation's most coveted industries.
A Life in Sports Television
Keith Hirshland has worked in sports television for more than 30 years, producing shows for ESPN and the Golf Channel. His father and mother were local television broadcast pioneers in Reno, Nevada and he penned this memoir as a tribute to them after they passed away.
Hirshland started to write about the athletes he had met and all the things he had seen and done over the course of his career. That journal fueled his memoir, Cover Me Boys, I'm Going In. The book covers the creation of two major sports networks and includes stories of some of the world's most famous athletes and broadcasters. No other book on the market gives such an intimate account of the creation of the Golf Channel, one of the first television networks dedicated to a single sport. It's the perfect gift for any sports fan.
