The fourteenth episode of The Weigh-In Podcast features my interview with boxing writer and historian, Frederick V. Romano.

Romano is the author of The Golden Age of Boxing on Radio and Television: A Blow-by-Blow History from 1921 to 1964. In this book, Romano explores the many roles that each medium played in both the development and the depiction of the sport. Principal among the topics covered are the ever-changing role of technology during the four-decade-plus period, how it impacted the manner in which the sport was presented to its public audience, the exponential growth of those audiences, and the influence radio and television had on the financial aspects of the sport, including the selective use of radio and television and the financial boom that the mediums created.

The Golden Age of Boxing on Radio and Television: A Blow-by-Blow History from 1921 to 1964 is available for purchase online through Amazon and Barnes & Noble.
