About Bob Angelo

Multiple Emmy Award winning Producer, Director, Writer, Editor and Cinematographer  


I grew up on Neville Island, a small suburb of Pittsburgh, PA, located five miles northwest of the city in the Ohio River. 


I played baseball, football and basketball for Neville High School before my 1970 graduation. 

I received Baccalaureate Degrees in both newspaper journalism and existential philosophy from Penn State University in 1974.

I earned a professional program Master’s Degree in broadcast journalism from Northwestern University in June of 1975.  


Less than two weeks later, I started my 43+ year career at NFL Films.


In retirement, I watch NFL football telecasts with more interest and zeal than ever. To me, NFL Red Zone is the ultimate television experience.


I still enjoy studying, analyzing and writing about the league’s teams and history.  I doubt that will ever change.  


So, whether you're a hardcore fan or just interested in learning more about plays and players from the past and present, join me here to celebrate “America’s Game!”
