Overview

Jock Around the Clock takes you back three decades to a time when satellite broadcasting and the concept of all sports all the time were brand-new. It's the story of how ESPN founders Bill and Scott Rasmussen, having been forced out of their TV sports network, turned to radio and gave birth to the all-sports network, Enterprise Radio. The story features names familiar to American sports fans as they gather to launch the network that would flash across the sky for a brief few months, then flame out, leaving behind the blueprint so many others have copied since.

About the Author

John Birchard, after retiring from the Voice of America's English language news division in Washington, DC, following a 51-year career in broadcasti ng, has launched a new career as The Car Pro (www.thecarpro.info) providing advice for people in the market for a new car. A long-time automotive journalist, he worked for Enterprise Radio as the network's auto racing reporter during the network's brief life and is therefore uniquely qualified to write about this forgotten chapter in broadcast history. He lives in Silver Spring, Maryland with his wife, Donna.
