Dodger Living Legend, Vin Scully, to Talk to Hollywood Crowd

Oct 30, 2009  •  Post A Comment

Vin Scully, who is still at the top of his game as arguably the best sports announcer in the country, will be making a rare appearance in front of Hollywood TV and radio executives in November.

Scully, who will be 82 on Nov. 29, has, remarkably, been in the Dodger broadcast booth since 1950. He will celebrate 60 years of broadcasting with the team next season.

Scully will be the featured guest at special Newsmaker Luncheon for the  Hollywood Radio and Television Society (HRTS) on Tuesday, Nov. 10, at the Beverly Wilshire Hotel. He will be interviewed by writer-director Ron Shelton, whose script for the film about baseball, "Bull Durham" was nominated for an Academy Award.

Several years ago TVWeek awarded Scully a Lifetime Achievement Award for his TV broadcasting.

  1. I had the pleasure of working with Vin Scully frequently during the CBS Sports Spectacular days.
    He is a class act as a person and a professional.
    I wish I could be there to hear him and toast him.
    Keep going, Vin, you are an inspiration for life and broadcasting.
