Synopsis

Marty Glickman began his career in the mid-1930s, just a few years after sports broadcasting began. Being in the industry during these early days, Glickman is uniquely able to provide a historical perspective on the profession as it has grown into a powerful force in sports. In this spirited autobiography he brings to life the most influential teams and personalities in the sports world. Some of the topics he covers in this Large Print edition include growing up in the Depression; high school and college athletics; jocks in broadcasting; originating basketball broadcasting; and recreating baseball games. Glickman discusses being the pioneer broadcaster on cable TV for Home Box Office (HBO), being an announcer coach for NBC and for the Madison Square Garden and Sports Channel cable networks, and coaching the first woman to do play-by-play on a professional football telecast. He also recounts associations and friendships with Bill Bradley, Bill Russell, Red Auerbach, and Allie Sherman. The Fastest Kid on the Block concludes with trenchant observations about Glickman's fellow sports broadcasters and personal tips on how to break into the competitive, wonderful world of sports broadcasting.
