skating podcast #16: Doug Wilson of ABC
Doug Wilson is just finishing up his 50th year as a producer and director for ABC/ESPN, and was honored on TV this past March by Terry Gannon at the World Championships in Sweden. He's won Emmys for his work, and is in the US Figure Skating Hall of Fame for his dynamic coverage of skating.
For all those who have wondered about how skating is covered on TV, you'll find this fascinating to hear how it develops behind the lens. His coverage of the "Battle of the Brians" at the 1988 Calgary Olympics is particularly interesting.
I'll warn you . . it's a looooong intervew! About 1 hr 19 minutes! But lot's of great information in there.
