NEW YORK — NFL Films President Steve Sabol has died from brain cancer. He was 69.
The NFL said Sabol died today, 18 months after he was diagnosed with a tumor on the left side of his brain. Sabol started working with his father, Ed, NFL Films' founder, in 1964, and their innovations revolutionized sports broadcasting and helped make the NFL the country's most popular sport.
Ed was elected to the Pro Football Hall of Fame last year. The two received the Lifetime Achievement Emmy from the National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences in 2003.
