History

ESPN started as an alternative to standard television news broadcasts and the information found in "Sports" sections of newspapers. It began as a fairly small operation and often had to broadcast unorthodox sporting events, such as the World's Strongest Man Competition; international sports relatively unknown in the U.S., such as Australian Rules Football, as well as the short-lived United States Football League (USFL), to attract viewers. In 1987, ESPN landed a contract to show National Football League games on Sunday evenings, an event which marked as a turning point in its development from a smaller cable TV network to a marketing empire, a cornerstone to the enthusiastic "sports culture" it largely helped to create. Worlds Strongest Man is the most important annual international event in strength athletics. ... Australian Rules and Aussie Rules redirect here. ...

From the early 1980s through the early 1990s, ESPN aired weekly professional wrestling programs from the Pro Wrestling USA, American Wrestling Association, Global Wrestling Federation, and World Class Championship Wrestling promotions.

More recently, ESPN was rumored to be considering picking up the rights to Total Nonstop Action's weekly show, TNA iMPACT! from FSN, but this was picked up by Spike TV.

ESPN was long considered to be the standard in American sports broadcasting, but it has recently been criticized for unimaginative programming and purposely hiring polarizing, "loudmouth" personalities who are pitted against each other in the "talking heads" format that has plagued cable television news channels. It is currently seeing public backlash similar to that experienced by MTV and increasingly viewed as a running parody of itself, earning monikers such as "BSPN". [1]


Music

ESPN has had its own theme music for quite a few years, but early on it used source music. An early theme for its flagship "SportsCenter" program was "Pulstar", an energetic electronic instrumental piece by Vangelis from his 1976 album Albedo 0.39.

ESPN in Popular Culture

ESPN has become a part of popular culture since its inception. The name is constantly referenced throughout the media in movies and television. While the announcers may be actual personalities, in many films where there is a sporting event, the coverage is by ESPN. People who do not even watch sports are familiar with ESPN. Often times this comes in the form of a lampoon of the number of channels ESPN operates. A few examples:

  • In the movie Zathura, Walter is watching Sportcenter on ESPN while Danny is pestering him, and the TV ends up being destroyed during the first spin of the game by a meteor.
  • In the DVD special features in the movie Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy, there is a skit that contains the "interview" of fictional anchorman Ron Burgundy (Will Ferrell) to work at ESPN in 1979; he stated that the idea of a twenty-four-hour sports network would be ludicrous. This first appeared on ESPN.com.
  • In one episode of King of the Hill, Hank mentions that the Gay Rodeo is a sport that he has seen on ESPN 3.
  • ESPN is referenced in a Simpson's cartoon episode; Homer flips through various channels and stops on a channel which clearly lampoons ESPN, except the network's initials are PENiS (an anagram of ESPN).
  • There are at least three children named after the network.[1]
