WBCC is thrilled to announce that Terry Bradshaw will be back with us again in 2015 to MC the Waltrip Brothers’ Charity Championship in Franklin, TN!
The first player chosen in the 1970 draft, Bradshaw became one of the most prolific quarterbacks in history, leading the Steelers to an unprecedented four Super Bowl championships – a feat that has only been duplicated once since. He also helped lead his team to six AFC championship games and eight straight playoff appearances from 1972 to 1979. Bradshaw, a two-time Super Bowl MVP in Super Bowl XIII and XIV, was also a four-time All-Pro. He retired just prior to the 1984 season due to an elbow injury.
Bradshaw joined CBS Sports as an NFL game analyst in 1984 and then became a studio analyst on The NFL Today for four seasons beginning in 1990. During his last two years as an NFL game analyst for CBS, Bradshaw served in an acclaimed partnership with play-by-play announcer Verne Lundquist. Prior to his full-time work for the network, he worked as a guest commentator for CBS Sports’ NFC postseason broadcasts from 1980 to 1982. He appeared as a contributor on the Super Bowl Today programs for Super Bowls XVI, XXIV and XXVI. Bradshaw has been with FOX NFL SUNDAY since its inception in 1994.
Over the span of his career, Bradshaw has been honored with multiple titles and awards. The Associated Press, Sport magazine, and the Maxwell Club of Philadelphia named him NFL Player of the Year in 1978. In 1979, he shared Sports Illustrated’s Man of the Year award with Willie Stargell of the Pittsburgh Pirates. In 1989, Bradshaw was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in his first year of eligibility. In July 1997, Bradshaw returned to Canton, Ohio to serve as presenter when the late Mike Webster, his center on the Steelers’ four Super Bowl title teams, was inducted into the Hall of Fame. He was named 1999’s Man of the Year by the Big Sisters of America and 2000’s Father of the Year by the National Father’s Day Council. In April 2001, Bradshaw added yet another prestigious distinction as he was presented with the NFL Alumni’s Career Achievement Award. In 2002, he became the NFL’s first player to receive a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. Bradshaw is also an Emmy award-winner with eight nominations for Outstanding Sports Personality and three wins in 2000, 2002 and 2009.
Bradshaw has written five books and became a New York Times best-selling author with his acclaimed autobiography, “It’s Only a Game” in 2001. His other autobiographies include: “Keep it Simple” in 2002, “Looking Deep” in 1989, “Terry Bradshaw: Man of Steel” in 1979 and “No Easy Game” in 1973.
