Within days of being fired by the Hartford Whalers on Memorial Day Weekend in 1978, Rasmussen had brainstormed ESPN. The first Sports Center broadcast became a reality 14 months later at 7 p.m. on September 7, 1979. Today, with a global presence in 200 countries and over 98 million television households in the United States, ESPN has indeed turned skeptics into believers worldwide. Entrepreneurial daring, irrepressible enthusiasm and a dash of good luck gave the world the first 24-hour television network. Once unleashed upon sports fans, ESPN’s impact forever changed the way we watch television.
