Dan Shulman’s ESPN Announcement Of Bin Laden’s Death

In case you missed it earlier, check out our article earlier today chronicling Dan Shulman’s live announcement regarding the death of Osama Bin Laden.  As Ben Koo pointed out, Shulman breaking into the late stages of a close game to deliver the jarring news compares to other moments in sports broadcasting history when sports and real life mix.  Like many broadcasting greats before him, Shulman was more than admirable in his handling of the situation, even encouraging viewers to change the channel and watch the news as it unfolded.  Our full analysis is available at the link, but here is the actual video of Shulman’s realtime announcement.  A huge tip of the hat to @LevityNYC for uploading and sending us the clip.
