Ellis Cannon

Ellis G. Cannon is an American talk show host, television personality and publisher.

He was born on March 28, 1959 and was raised in Midland, Pennsylvania. He graduated from Lincoln High School in Midland in 1977. Cannon received his B.A. and J.D. from the University of Pittsburgh in 1981 and 1984, respectively.

Between 1984-1996, Cannon was a trial lawyer in the Pittsburgh law firm of Robb, Leonard & Mulvihill, highlighted by a successful representation of the Major League Baseball Players Association. He served as a partner in the law firm from 1990-1996.

In 1996, Ellis and his brother, Henry, co-founded the "Pittsburgh Sports Report", a monthly newspaper covering all Western Pennsylvania sports. Cannon remains the publisher of PSR as of April 2010. Since its creation in 2004, Cannon has also been the publisher of "KidSPORTS Magazine, A Parent's Guide for the Young Athlete". He is President of Pittsburgh Sports Report, Inc.

PSR has won 5 Golden Quill Awards, presented by The Press Club of Western Pennsylvania, recognizing excellence in journalism, among over 20 nominations.

Ellis and Henry co-hosted "The Pittsburgh Sports Report with the Cannon Brothers", a sports talk show on Pittsburgh's ESPN Radio 1250 beginning in 1998. In 2001, Ellis became the sole host of "The Pittsburgh Sports Report with Ellis Cannon" on the station and the show quickly became the Pittsburgh market's #1 rated weekend talk show. He also hosted numerous other programs dedicated to the NFL, Pittsburgh Steelers, MLB, Pittsburgh Penguins and professional golf. Cannon also co-hosted national weekend programming for ESPN Radio between 2001-2004.

In January 2004, Cannon was hired by WPGB (FM 104.7) of Clear Channel in Pittsburgh to host "Ellis Cannon’s Sportsline Pittsburgh," weeknights from 6 PM EDT to 8 PM EDT, and won multiple Pittsburgh A.I.R. Awards for Achievement in Radio, including "Best Evening Show on a Sports, Talk or Personality Station", "Best Sports Reporter" and "Best Sports Coverage Reporting". "Sportsline" was the only daily sports program in the station's newstalk format and was removed from the air in January 2010 when the station's daily format was changed to all political talk.

Cannon was an on-air member of the Pittsburgh Steelers radio network between 2004–2010, serving as gameday anchor and host of all pre-game, halftime and post-game coverage. He was also a member of the on-air broadcast, offering in-game updates and analysis, and covered the Steelers in Super Bowl XL and Super Bowl XLIII. He hosted several Pittsburgh Steelers players shows as well.

From 2007 to 2009, "Ellis Cannon's Sportsline Pittsburgh" was the lead-in program to the Pittsburgh Pirates Radio Network game broadcasts after the Pirates changed flagship stations from KDKA-AM to WPGB, after KDKA served as the flagship from 1955 to 2007.

Cannon produced daily on-air commentaries during his tenure at WPGB, served as a daily sport commentator on the Pittsburgh Steelers flagship station, WDVE-FM (2004–2010), and previously served as a sports anchor for Pittsburgh's Fox Sports Radio 970 (WPGG-AM).

In addition, Cannon has appeared on many national television networks as a sports/sports law analyst, including Fox News Channel, MSNBC and CNN, and on many Pittsburgh television programs on KDKA-TV, Pittsburgh CW, and PCNC.

In April, 2010, Mr. Cannon was inducted into the Beaver County (PA) Sports Hall of Fame in the category of broadcasting.

He also teaches the Ellis Cannon Academy of Sports Media and Broadcasting at the Pennsylvania Cyber Charter School.

List of current National Football League broadcasters

This is a list of current (entering the 2019 season) NFL broadcasters, including those for each individual team as well as those that have national rights. Unlike the other three major professional sports leagues in the U.S. (Major League Baseball, the NBA and the NHL), all regular-season and post-season games are shown on American television on one of five national networks. Pre-season games are still televised by regional/local broadcasters which selected preseason games will be simulcast on NFL Network.

Super Bowl X

Super Bowl X was an American football game between the National Football Conference (NFC) champion Dallas Cowboys and the American Football Conference (AFC) champion Pittsburgh Steelers to decide the National Football League (NFL) champion for the 1975 season. The Steelers defeated the Cowboys by the score of 21–17 to win their second consecutive Super Bowl. They were the third team to win back-to-back Super Bowls. (The Miami Dolphins won Super Bowls VII and VIII, and the Green Bay Packers won Super Bowls I and II.) It was also the first Super Bowl in which both participating teams had previously won a Super Bowl, as the Steelers were the defending champions and the Cowboys had won Super Bowl VI.

The game was played at the Orange Bowl in Miami, Florida, on January 18, 1976, one of the first major national events of the United States Bicentennial year. Both the pre-game and halftime show celebrated the Bicentennial, while players on both teams wore special patches on their jerseys with the Bicentennial logo.

Super Bowl X featured a contrast of playing styles between the Steelers and the Cowboys, which were, at the time, the two most popular teams in the league. The Steelers, dominating teams with their "Steel Curtain" defense and running game, finished the regular season with a league best 12–2 record and defeated the Baltimore Colts and the Oakland Raiders in the playoffs. The Cowboys, with their offense and "flex" defense, became the first NFC wild-card team to advance to the Super Bowl after posting a 10–4 regular season record and postseason victories over the Minnesota Vikings and the Los Angeles Rams.

Trailing 10–7 in the fourth quarter of Super Bowl X, the Steelers rallied to score 14 unanswered points, including a 64-yard touchdown reception by Pittsburgh wide receiver Lynn Swann. The Cowboys cut the score, 21–17, late in the game with wide receiver Percy Howard's 34-yard touchdown reception, but Pittsburgh safety Glen Edwards halted Dallas' rally with an end zone interception as time expired. Swann, who caught four passes for a Super Bowl record 161 yards and one touchdown, became the first wide receiver to be named Super Bowl MVP.

Super Bowl XLV

Super Bowl XLV was an American football game between the American Football Conference (AFC) champion Pittsburgh Steelers and the National Football Conference (NFC) champion Green Bay Packers to decide the National Football League (NFL) champion for the 2010 season. The Packers defeated the Steelers by the score of 31–25. The game was played on February 6, 2011 at Cowboys Stadium in Arlington, Texas, the first time the Super Bowl was played in the Dallas–Fort Worth area.

Unlike most other Super Bowls, this game featured two title-abundant franchises: coming into the game, the Packers held the most NFL championships with 12 (9 league championships prior to the Super Bowl era and 3 Super Bowl championships), while the Steelers held the most Super Bowl championships with 6. The Packers entered their fifth Super Bowl in team history, and became the first number 6-seeded team in the NFC to compete in the Super Bowl, after posting a 10–6 regular season record. The Steelers finished the regular season with a 12–4 record, and advanced to a league-tying 8th Super Bowl appearance.

Green Bay dominated most of the first half of Super Bowl XLV, jumping to a 21–3 lead before Pittsburgh cut it down to 21–10 just before halftime. Then after the teams exchanged touchdowns, the Steelers pulled within 28–25 midway through the fourth quarter with wide receiver Mike Wallace's 25-yard touchdown reception from quarterback Ben Roethlisberger and a two-point conversion. But the Packers answered with Mason Crosby's 23-yard field goal with 2:07 remaining, and then prevented the Steelers from scoring on their final drive of the game. Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers was named Super Bowl MVP, completing 24 of 39 passes for 304 yards and three touchdowns.

The broadcast of Super Bowl XLV on Fox averaged about 111 million viewers, breaking the record for the most-watched program in American television history. The game's attendance was 103,219, just short of the Super Bowl record 103,985 set in Super Bowl XIV at the Rose Bowl in Pasadena, California. The halftime show featured the American hip hop group The Black Eyed Peas, with additional performances by Usher and Slash.

The DVE Morning Show

The DVE Morning Show (currently branded Randy Baumann and the DVE Morning Show) is a morning radio comedy and variety show broadcast on Pittsburgh classic rock station 102.5 FM WDVE featuring DJ Randy Baumann. The show began airing in the 6:00-10:00 am weekday morning drive slot in late 1986 after the cancellation of Jimmy and Steve in the Morning (from which the show draws inspiration from). Originally hosted by Scott Paulsen, the show would go on to be hosted by the team of Paulsen and Jim Krenn from 1988 to 1999, briefly by Krenn solo, then by the team of Krenn and Baumann from 2000 to 2011. Since late December 2012, Baumann has hosted with comedian Bill Crawford and Val Porter. Additionally, many newsreaders, sportscasters and other members have come and gone during the show's run.

In its nearly thirty years of existence, the DVE Morning Show has consistently remained one of the most popular morning radio shows in the Pittsburgh radio market. Though the show has changed personnel several times, the same basic formula of comedy bits, celebrity impersonations, telephone interviews, in-studio guests, unusual news items, sports coverage and promotion of local music and comedy has remained and been the key to the show's continued success.
