“In Your Life” CBS Sports to air documentary celebrating Verne Lundquist’s 50 years in broadcasting

(New York, NY) “IN YOUR LIFE”, a one-hour documentary celebrating Verne Lundquist’s 50 years in broadcasting will air Saturday, Nov. 29 (1:30 PM, ET) on the CBS Television Network.

Verne has witnessed and called some of the greatest moments in sports history from Jack Nicklaus’ birdie at the 1986 Masters® to Christian Laettner’s last-second shot to beat Kentucky in the 1992 NCAA Tournament. “IN YOUR LIFE” relives these indelible moments with Verne as the storyteller, and takes you through his incredible career.

The documentary follows Verne over the past year, his 50th as a broadcaster, which included announcing two of the greatest games in college football history – Auburn defeating Georgia (11/16/13) and Auburn beating Alabama in the Iron Bowl (11/30/13) – as well as receiving numerous honors, including the Vin Scully Lifetime Achievement Award in Sports Broadcasting and the Blackie Sherrod Lifetime Achievement Award.

The documentary also features interviews with those who were there with Verne during these memorable moments, both announcing and playing, such as Jim Nantz and Grant Hill, as well as other sports broadcasting icons. He made his broadcasting debut on August 31, 1963 at KTBC-TV in Austin, Texas, a station owned by President and Mrs. Lyndon Johnson. Verne joined CBS Sports in 1982 and has called more than 20 different sports for the Network. He is currently the lead college football play-by-play announcer calling the SEC ON CBS and Army-Navy game. He also calls the Masters and PGA Championship and will announce his 31st consecutive NCAA Tournament this year.
