SIDELINE OBSERVATIONS: Check out the 'North End Zone Sports Report'

Published: Tuesday, October 29, 2013 at 05:30 PM.

As a Gulf Breeze High School senior, my classmates prophesied I would one day replace broadcasting icon Howard Cosell as the great American sweetheart.

You don't have to be a rocket scientist to figure out I came up a little short of replacing Cosell in the broadcast booth or the hearts of Americans. Even so, I've always had an interest in broadcasting, and often catch myself doing a play-by-play as I watch a ball game on television.

I've even made a few guest appearances on local sports talk radio shows and, several years back, I appeared a few times on the Raider Report television show that rounded up Northwest Florida State College sports.

I never thought I'd be able to quench that thirst I have for broadcasting right here at the Crestview News Bulletin.

I hope you've had a chance to watch the “North End Zone Sports Report” webcast, a recent addition to the News Bulletin sports coverage.

 Later today, the fifth webcast will appear on, and you can go back and view previous shows.

As is the case with many good ideas, the webcast’s concept just popped up in a conversation I was having with News Bulletin Editor Thomas Boni. I was probably preaching the virtues of the good old days to Thomas, who is more years my junior than I would care to admit.
