SVG Summit: Sports Broadcasting Hall-of-Famers Ken Aagaard, Bob Dixon, George Orgera Reflect on Careers Behind the Scenes

If you missed this year’s SVG Summit, Dec. 15-16 at the New York Hilton Hotel, SVG has assembled video highlights of every single Day 2 session, allowing you to see what you may have missed during the day’s keynote conversations and panels. Full videos of every session will be available on the SVG Members page in the coming days, but SVG will showcase the best moments in a series of stories this week.

This year’s Sports Broadcasting Hall of Fame ceremony honored three of the giants of sports production and technical crafts. F&F Productions’ founder and president George Orgera, CBS Sports production guru Ken Aagaard, and audio legend Bob Dixon talked candidly about their careers and the state of the industry during an exclusive keynote conversation at the ninth-annual SVG Summit on Tuesday.

The group sat down with SVG’s Ken Kerschbaumer to discuss everything from the future of 4K to Thursday Night Football and audio’s impact on a production workflow and the viewer’s experience at home.
