This is Daniel Riley for Sportstalk on PWRNetwork, the World in your hands.
The passing of Keith Jackson is a massive loss to the Sportscasting industry that can’t be replaced. He called Bowl Games, Rivalry games, and even a few NFL games during his illustrious broadcasting career.
When Jackson called a game, you knew that game was the most important that Saturday; that was the aura Jackson possessed. There’s no way to put into words what this man’s contributions’ to College Football really accomplished.
Admit it: more than just a few games you really remember had Keith Jackson doing play by play. He made you feel like a participant. And the game felt like precisely that.
The passing of Mr. Jackson is the end of an era of College Football that we will sorely miss…and took for granted.
Thank you, Keith.
