Ten Things I Would Tweet If I Was Still On Twitter… Volume Three

Aside from a few bank accounts nothing got better when Scott Van Pelt left SVP & Russillo for a midnight Sportscenter gig

Why am I listening to commercials on Sirius XM radio shows that air exclusively on Sirius XM Radio?

Why did the 49ers decide they wanted to look like Louisville?

Feel free to smack me if I ever post my golf swing on Facebook and ask strangers for thoughts/advice

Katrek and Maginness is golf radio’s best show by a mile and should replace Morning Drive on Golf Channel

End of Summer/ beginning of Fall is my favorite time of the year

I hope my friends at Golf Channel have a great Solheim Cup broadcast

It’s weird and great that the Dodgers haven’t won a World Series since 1988 and they won’t win this year

Rafa Nadal should fire every single person that made him do that embarrassing underwear ad

Who was the genius that decided Danny Kanell was a “star”

About Keith Hirshland

My name is Keith Hirshland and I am a four decades television veteran who has spent time both in front of and behind the camera. During nearly forty years in broadcasting my path has crossed in front of, behind and alongside some of the best in the business... And some of the worst. Many of those people I count as friends while others wouldn't make the effort to spit on me if I was on fire. This television life started early watching my Mom and Dad found, fund and run a local affiliate TV station in Reno, Nevada. As a teenager approaching adulthood I worked for them, first as an on-air sports reporter/anchor and later as a director and producer. Jobs in the industry took me across the country and then to many places around the world. Sports is my passion and putting it on TV has been my business. Production credits include auto racing, baseball, basketball, bowling, college football, field hockey, soccer, volleyball and water polo but the majority of my time "in the chair" since 1990 has been invested in the game of golf with both ESPN and The Golf. Channel ( I was one of the first forty people hired by TGC in 1994 ). I am a fan and I watch TV sports as a fan but I also have hundreds of thousands of hours watching from inside a production truck. I think that makes me qualified to comment, my hope is you agree. I have written two books, Cover Me Boys, I'm Going In (Tales of the Tube from a Broadcast Brat), a memoir that is a tribute to my parents, the hard working, creative people who started ESPN2 and The Golf Channel and a look back at my life in television. My second book is a novel, Big Flies, and is a mystery that tells the story of a father and a son with four of the world's most notorious unsolved robberies as a backdrop. I look forward to sharing new thoughts about golf, golf television, sports in general and the broadcast industry with you. The views expressed here are mine and mine alone.
