— Steamboat Springs sportscaster Verne Lundquist, working through his final season calling college football games on CBS, was recognized with the Ronald Reagan Media Award last week by the United States Sports Academy.

He was presented the award during the Georgia-Florida college football game in Jacksonville, Florida.

Lundquist, who grew up in Texas and calls Steamboat home, is in his 54th year as a broadcaster. He calls Southeastern Conference football games for CBS and frequently works Steamboat into his broadcast.

He announced his impending retirement earlier this fall.
