“My Adventures in Broadcasting” offers a unique, behind-the-scenes perspective on television coverage of major news and sporting events.

In his new memoir, “My Adventures in Broadcasting: A Unique Perspective on Television Coverage of Major News and Sporting Events” (published by iUniverse), author Joe Maltz offers a behind-the-scenes, technical perspective on nearly 40 years of television coverage of major, newsworthy events.

Maltz’s career as a broadcast engineer with the American Broadcasting Company spanned 37 years and was followed by five years as a consultant to the television industry. “My Adventures in Broadcasting” takes a look back at his experiences during television’s “golden years” from the usually invisible point of view of a technician.

Maltz participated in the technical preparation and execution of five Olympic Games, including the 1972 Munich Olympics, during which he covered the tragedy that unfolded there. For his engineering work on Olympic technical design, he won two Emmys. He also covered four political conventions and the first televised coverage of a Russian-American track meet in Moscow, which took place during the Cold War.

Many memoirs about television broadcasting recall events from an on-air perspective, ignoring the participation of the technical people that enabled these events to be successfully produced and executed. “My Adventures in Broadcasting” offers a unique, behind-the-scenes perspective on television coverage of major news and sporting events.
