On the afternoon of our 49th annual banquet (Hall of Fame and Person of the Year), we sat down with Broadcast Pioneers member George Finkel for a one-on-one interview. Our host that afternoon was Broadcast Pioneers member Mike Strug (who was inducted into our Hall of Fame in 2008). George Finkel (who was going to be inducted into our Hall of Fame later that evening) was in town for the banquet. George had appeared in Playboy Magazine (in an ad) and then eventually came to Philadelphia and WFIL-TV. In 1965, he went over to WPHL-TV to do lots of different sporting events. Then he went to NBC Sports where he directed and/or produced their coverage of the Super Bowl, the Olympics and many more classic sports presentations.
