Washington State naming its broadcast building in honor of Keith Jackson
PULLMAN, Wash. -- Washington State University is naming its broadcast building Keith Jackson Hall in honor of the sports broadcaster who had a 40-year career with ABC.
Keith Jackson was the first play-by-play announcer on Monday Night Football and fixture on ABC's Wide World of Sports.
Washington State says Jackson, a 1954 graduate of the school, is a strong supporter who has given more than $1 million to the Edward R. Murrow College of Communication and WSU athletics.
The dedication ceremony for Keith Jackson Hall is set for Sept. 12 to coincide with Jackson's visit for his 60th alumni class reunion.
