9781491779521: The Best Seat in the House: My 48 years in local sports broadcasting

Jim Doyle's hands were shaking as he signed off after a radio broadcast of one of the most remarkable college football games he had ever witnessed. Although he was a seasoned broadcaster, Doyle's hope remained the same as it did when he first started in the business: that through descriptions, gusto, and accuracy, he once again provided his listeners a good feel for what it was like to be there.

Doyle relies on nearly a half century of sports radio broadcasting experience to share a treasure trove of stories that range from the exciting to the bizarre and even the tragic. From the biggest comeback in the history of college football to a "rainout" of a college basketball game to the courageous story of high school football radio analyst fighting terminal cancer while continuing to broadcast the game he loved, Doyle provides fans an insightful, unforgettable behind-the-scenes look at the passion, commitment, and skill surrounding radio sports broadcasting in a small Pennsylvania town.

The Best Seat in the House reveals a radio sportscaster's fifty-year journey through the world of broadcasting as he called plays, painted vivid pictures for his listeners, and reminded fans that nothing great is ever achieved without enthusiasm.
