Athens, GA (Nov 27, 2007) - I first met Glenn Adamo, Vice-President of Media Operations for the NFL Network, back in the Mid-1980s. I worked for him at a PBA (yes, as in Professional Bowlers Association) event in Columbus, Ohio. I was paid to sit in a truck and "direct" the tape feed back to New York for a delayed broadcast (this means I counted backwards from ten a lot). Glenn was an awesome guy to work for and we recently reconnected on LinkedIn. The following is his biography as posted on the Sports Video Group web site.

A 28-year veteran of the sports television industry, Glenn Adamo is currently National Football League vice president of media operations, where he is responsible for the day-to-day functions of the League’s broadcasting and media operations departments, including NFL Films, NFL Network, and DIRECTV.

Adamo spent 15 years at NBC Sports, working as a coordinating producer for NFL Football, NCAA Basketball, NBA, College Bowl Games, MLB, Wimbledon, French Open and many other events. He also served as group vice president of broadcasting at the NHL.

Adamo has won five Emmy awards, including three for Olympic coverage, one for the 1983 World Series and one for Wimbledon.
