Legendary sportscaster Dick Stockton is calling it a career after 55 years behind the mic.
- The 78-year-old broadcaster made his announcement Tuesday, saying he wants to "call it a day and allow the many younger broadcasters the chance to develop their careers, just as I had the opportunity years ago."
- Stockton joined CBS in 1978 and switched over to Fox in 1994, where he spent the last 27 years. He's called more than 1,500 network games, including six Super Bowls, nine NBA Finals, and the 1994 Winter Olympics.
