Steve Sabol, 69, son of Ed Sabol, the originator and creator in 1962 of NFL Films, died yesterday of brain cancer he had been battling since 2011. Steve was apparently the creative force in the company, in fact, he was one of the earliest cameramen in the group. Steve personally received 35 Emmys for writing, editing, directing, cinematography, and producing. He incorporated wireless microphones and slow motion replays into the television film editions. He also conceived of "NFL Bloopers." Although baseball had previously been the most popular American sport, Steve's and his father's company, originally based in Philadelphia and recently out of Mt. Laurel, NJ, brought American football to the front of US sports entertainment. For vocal interest, Steve used local television personality John Facenda's booming voice and continued with the distinct words of baseball commentator Harry Kalas, both legends in their own time. Steve assumed control of the company, NFL Films, when his dad, who survives him, semiretired.
