Disney-owned ESPN announced today that they have extended the contract of their longtime college basketball analyst Dick Vitale through the 2019-2020 season.  The abundantly enthusiastic basketball personality has been with the sports channel since its inaugural year (1979-1980) and called the station’s first major NCAA basketball game (Wisconsin at DePaul on 12/5/79).

I am founder and editor of DisneyNews.us and DisneyEverything.com My passion for all things Disney goes pretty far back but was deepened by two semi-recent developments:1) The birth of my son (who is now 6 years old and can't get enough Disney); and 2) Disney’s purchase of Lucasfilm/Star Wars (did I mention I was a super Star Wars geek?)I recently came to the realization that I spent a significant portion of my day reading articles about Disney and watching it with my son, so it only made sense that I would start sharing some of what I read and see and building a little community around it.
