Pat Summerall passed away today (April 16) at the age of 82.  

The legendary broadcaster worked a record 16 Super Bowls in a network career that began in 1962 and ended in 2002.

In the 21 seasons Summerall worked alongside John Madden, they grew into America’s most popular sports broadcast team. Their work for CBS at Super XVI, following the 1981 season, remains the highest-rated sports program of all time, with more than 49 percent of the nation tuned in.

But Summerall was much more than simply a football broadcaster. He was a man for all sports seasons. He called NBA games for CBS and was the network’s lead voice on golf and tennis broadcasts. He worked 27 Masters and 20 United States Tennis Opens.
