ESPN Classic relives spirit of '79

21 December 2004 | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

NEW YORK -- ESPN Classic is going to put an old spin on a new game. Though better known for showing key games from the annals of sports history, ESPN Classic is going to televise nine Wednesday nights of live college basketball beginning Jan. 5. The first is West Virginia against Villanova at 8 p.m. EST. The games, under the banner of "Turn Back the Clock", will have a decidedly retro on-air look, circa 1979. "We're taking the graphics back to our early days of ESPN," ESPN Classic exec producer John Dahl said. Retro also extends to the sound: Early ESPN announcer Jim Simpson will return to do the play-by-play, and analysts will include former coaches and others. »
