Dick Vitale Signs New Extension With ESPN

Get ready for a lot more Dickie V on ESPN.

Hall of Famer Dick Vitale signed a new contract extension to remain with ESPN through the 2014-2015 season.

“There is nothing greater than walking into an arena and feeling the excitement and energy of a big-time college basketball game,” Vitale said. “I can’t thank ESPN enough for allowing me to be a kid at heart by giving me the opportunity to sit courtside for games I would pay top dollar to see. I’m living a dream. I’ve been extremely blessed to work with so many beautiful people and to talk about the game I love.”

Vitale joined ESPN right after the network’s launch in September 1979 and has called more than a thousand games in his career.
