One Last Shining Moment

Doug Towey, a pioneer of CBS’s college basketball tradition, is dead from cancer at the age of 61. Those who worked with him said Towey participated in "virtually every major sporting event in the world" during his 34-year TV career, spanning everything from Super Bowls to PGA Championships. He’ll leave behind the song he chose to represent the network’s NCAA basketball coverage—David Barrett's "One Shining Moment."
