About Dick Vitale

It’s Dickie V, baby! One of the most legendary personalities in the history of sports broadcasting, Dick Vitale has been the voice of college basketball for decades. During the days that he isn’t on TV talking college hoops, his fans can find him on Periscope, where Dick talks about whatever is on his mind—sports or otherwise. Always known as a people person, he said in an April 2017 interview with The Ringer that he likes to live stream because it lets him “exchange feelings with people.” He loves his fans, giving 75K+ Periscope followers free commentary even about the games he wasn’t paid to talk about. By adapting to social media, the Basketball Hall of Famer has solidified his legacy for generations to come.
