Summary Dropping out of college to join the crew of ABC's Wide World of Sports, Ebersol went on to create Saturday Night Live with Lorne Michaels, and later produced the show for four seasons. He partnered with Vince McMahon to bring professional wrestling to network TV, helped turn basketball into a global phenomenon on NBC Sports, and created NBC's Sunday Night Football. Here Ebersol shares behind-the-scenes stories while offering an insightful history and analysis of TV's evolution from broadcast to cable, and into the future. -- adapted from jacket
