Excerpt: Bruce William McAvaney OAM (born 22 June 1953 in Ferryden Park, South Australia) is an Australian sports broadcaster with the Seven Network, well-known for his commentary of Australian rules football matches as well as covering every Summer Olympic Games from Moscow 1980 until Beijing 2008. He is noted for his animated enthusiasm and meticulous research. The son of an Adelaide accountant, McAvaney developed an early interest in sport and race calling. After attending Woodville High School (and failing Year 12) he spent five years as a Telecom clerk. Then in 1976 during a day off work, McAvaney flew to Kilmore, Victoria to bet on some races. There, he met Kevin Hillier, an Adelaide race caller, who suggested McAvaney help him out back in Adelaide. It was therefore through a chance meeting that McAvaney launched his career in the sports media, joining Adelaide radio station 5DN, calling horse races and later hosting a sports show. McAvaney made the jump to television in 1978, when he joined Adelaide station ADS-7 to read sport news and produce the weekly Racetrack program. His career received a boost when colleague Sandy Roberts covered the 1980 Moscow Olympics for Seven, and Bruce was chosen to host the Adelaide end of the telecast for the station. In 1983 he moved to Melbourne and joined Ten Melbourne to read sport news. The following year he was the secondary host and commentated track and field events at the 1984 Los Angeles Olympics for the Ten Network. Between 1985 and 1988, McAvaney also called the Melbourne Cup and hosted various major sporting telecasts for Ten, including the 1986 Edinburgh Commonwealth Games, the 1987 World Athletics Championships...http: //booksllc.net/?id=305221
