New York, NY (August 21, 2015)—Two audio professionals are included in the list of eight inductees to the Sports Broadcasting Hall of Fame this year.
The inductees this year include Fox Sports audio consultant Fred Aldous and Game Creek Video president Pat Sullivan (featured in PSN August 2015) in addition to industry legend Ted Turner, broadcasters Marv Albert and Dick Button, NFL directing legend Sandy Grossman, producer Mike Pearl and retired Fox Sports operations executive Jerry Steinberg. The inductees were voted into the Hall of Fame by a panel of nearly 100 sports broadcasting industry leaders.
A staple in network broadcast audio since 1986, Fred Aldous has worked for all of the major networks and has mixed practically every type of sporting event there is. Aldous has been an audio mixer for Fox Sports since its inception in 1994, becoming their audio consultant and senior mixer in 1998. He has garnered 23 Sports Emmy awards over the span of his career in the categories of best live sound, technical achievement, and technical team remote. An advocate and pioneer of discrete surround sound in sports, Aldous has helped change the way we listen to live sports audio, especially NASCAR and the NFL.
Pat Sullivan is president and owner of Game Creek Video. Sullivan launched the company 20 years ago with only two trucks and six employees and today, thanks to Sullivan’s leadership, the company has more than 35 production trucks and 100 employees that service clients including ESPN, the YES Network, CBS, ABC, NBC Olympics, NESN, SNY, HBO, and FOX Sports. Sullivan previously served as General Manager of the New England Patriots, from 1983 to 1991, during which time the Patriots won the AFC Championship and appeared in Super Bowl XX.
