Keith Jackson was the author of the ‘Granddaddy of Them All’ nickname that is enjoyed today as part of a global Rose Bowl Game brand on New Year’s Day.
Keith Jackson's voice recorded the soundtrack of the biggest moments in college football, the Olympic Games, Wide World of Sports, the first season of Monday Night Football, and beyond. For over 50 years, he was a symbol of togetherness and inspiration for sports fans across the globe. As a mentor and father figure to some, he felt like a friend to millions watching from their homes.
