This is the story of the most controversial, provocative and influential sports announcer the industry has ever known. Ted Husing was called the Master for good reason. But, he was also a Street Survivor - Bold Innovator - Super Star - Night Owl - Jealous Lover - Battler of Cancer and inspiration to anyone who ever heard the sound of his voice. Hiding behind an often arrogant, virile manner, lurked a complex spirit filled with contradictions, veiled insecurities and a burning desire to succeed. The son of German immigrants, he endured an urban tough adolescence to become a cultural icon loved by some, hated by others, respected by all. From start to finish, the epic life of Ted Husing held more high stakes drama, juicy love triangles and heart wrenching tragedy than a network daytime soap opera, none more exemplary and powerful than helping family members escape the Nazis on the eve of World War II. A household word during the Golden Age of Radio, Husing was truly Mr. Everything, covering news stories like the famous Hindenburg zeppelin crash, or helping launch the careers of unknown musical artists such as Bing Crosby, Duke Ellington, Desi Arnaz and Guy Lombardo by introducing them to a national audience. But, no doubt Husings greatest impact in radio was calling sports. With a commanding baritone, piercing vocabulary and surgeon like ability, no one described a football game, boxing match or horse race like Husing. His bold, innovative style and sometimes-controversial play-by-play made Husings broadcasts a must-listen, creating the template for todays modern sports announcer. John Lewis captures the story of this broadcast legend in compelling fashion, transporting the reader to a forgotten time complete with raw, human emotion. Radio Master: The Life and Times of Sports Broadcasting Great Ted Husing not only brings to life the exciting, often dangerous years of early radio and post-prohibition America, but the fervent sporting events of that era in much the same way Husing himself would have brought to the airwaves.
