Jerry Steinberg, who is still referred to as “The Godfather” by his Fox Sports colleagues, is a legendary figure in remote sports production. Logging stints at ABC, CBS, NBC, ESPN, and Fox during his 35-plus-year career, he was an original member of two startup teams, namely the ones responsible for launching ESPN in 1979 and Fox Sports in 1994.  As a field operations specialist, he worked on four Olympic Games, 13 World Series, and a half dozen Super Bowls. While at Fox, Jerry managed operations for all of Fox’s live broadcasts (upwards of 300 a year), including facilities, manpower, and new technologies. In his spare time, Jerry is likely to be found at the gym; he is a six-time marathon finisher, with a personal best of 4:18.
