Ken Fouts caught the broadcasting bug while earning his BS in Education at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, working part-time at KLIN, KLNS, KOLN TV and KUON TV. Before graduating in 1964, Ken knew that directing coverage of sporting events was his career goal. As one of America’s leading producers/directors of national and international sports programming, Ken’s employers included NBC Sports, ABC Sports, Turner Sports, ESPN, Fox Sports and others. He produced and directed events including Cincinnati Reds baseball, NFL playoffs, the World Series, Orange and Fiesta Bowls, Super Bowl XV and two Olympics. The breadth and quality of Ken’s work earned him seven Emmy Awards after producing and directing over 3,000 TV sporting events in 15 different countries around the world over five decades, before retiring in 2002.
