NFL Broadcaster Pat Summerall Dead at 82

Veteran NFL broadcaster Pat Summerall, who worked a whopping 16 Super Bowls on network TV, has died at the age of 82, the Dallas Morning News reports. Summerall, known for his to-the-point, staccato broadcasting style, worked for CBS from 1961 to 1993 and followed the NFL to Fox in 1994. He retired after the 2002 season. His work alongside legendary analyst John Madden at the 1982 Super Bowl, when more than 49 percent of the nation tuned in, remains the highest-rated sports program of all time.
