Vin Scully net worth and salary: Vin Scully is an American sportscaster with a net worth of $5 million dollars and annual salary of $800 thousand. Born in The Bronx, New York, Vin Scully attended Fordham University, where he began working as a broadcaster for college games. His college years were busy, as he co-founded a radio station, served as a broadcaster for multiple sports, sang with a quartet, edited his class yearbook, and played on the baseball team. He received only one job offer after college, but that led to a job broadcasting college football games for CBS Radio. He became part of the Brooklyn Dodgers coverage team in 1950, and remained with the Dodgers even after they moved to California. His play-by-play announcements were so popular, that fans would bring radios to the stadium to listen to his commentary, while watching the game live. He also continued to call football games, and occasionally tennis and golf, for CBS. In the early 80s, he shifted to covering baseball for NBC. He covered baseball for that network until the late 80s, when they cut their baseball coverage. Since then, he has continued to call baseball for the Dodgers, and to call World Series Games. He has been working almost continuously for 65 years.
Vincent Edward "Vin" Scully (born November 29, 1927) is an American sportscaster, best known as the play-by-play announcer for the Los Angeles Dodgers baseball team on Prime Ticket, KCAL television, and KLAC radio, ever since the Dodgers moved to Los Angeles in 1957. His 63 seasons with the Dodgers (1950 - present) is the longest tenure of any broadcaster with a single team in professional sports history, and he is second by one year to only Tommy Lasorda in terms of number of years with the Dodgers organization in any capacity. He is known for his signature introduction to Dodger games, "It's time for Dodger Baseball."
Born in The Bronx, Scully grew up in the Washington Heights section of Manhattan. He made ends meet by delivering beer and mail, pushing garment racks, and cleaning silver in the basement of the Pennsylvania Hotel in New York City. His father was a silk salesman; his mother a Roman Catholic homemaker of Irish descent from whom her son inherited his red hair. Scully attended high school at the Fordham Preparatory School in The Bronx. He decided that he wanted to become a sports announcer when he became fascinated with the football broadcasts on the radio.
After serving in the United States Navy for two years, Scully began his career as a student broadcaster and journalist at Fordham University. While at Fordham, he helped found its FM radio station WFUV (which now presents a Vin Scully Lifetime Achievement Award each year), was assistant sports editor for Volume 28 of The Fordham Ram his senior year, sang in a barbershop quartet, played center field for the Fordham Rams baseball team, called radio broadcasts for Rams baseball, football, and basketball, got a degree, and sent about 150 letters to stations along the Eastern seaboard. He got only one response, from CBS Radio affiliate WTOP in Washington, which made him a fill-in.
Scully was then recruited by Red Barber, the sports director of the CBS Radio Network, for its college football cover
