RIP to Eddie Einhorn, the man who created TVS and through it promoted and syndicated the IWA in the mid 1970s. In the mid 1980s he used his connections in the sports TV world to get the AWA on ESPN. TVS in its day aired college basketball, college football bowl games and all star games, the WFL, auto racing, golf, tennis, pro wrestling, and other events. Einhorn later ran CBS Sports and then became part owner of the White Sox. He also tried, but failed to get a network TV contract for the USFL's ill fated fall season in 1986. He was a pro wrestling promoter and fan who attended the CAC on at least one occasion and donated the Jack Pfefer papers and files to Notre Dame's library for preservation.
