History[edit] Main article: History of ESPN ESPN
ESPN
Inc. was founded in 1979 by Bill Rasmussen attempting to broadcast Connecticut sports over ESPN
ESPN
cable channel. Getty Oil, Anheuser-Busch
Anheuser-Busch
and the NCAA all got involved with the new cable channel. In 1984, ABC purchase a stake in the company. ABC merged with Capital Cities. The combined company was purchased by the Walt Disney Co. in 1996.[6] Shortly after being terminated as World Hockey Association's New England Whalers communications director, Rasmussen conceived in May 1978 of a plan to product Connecticut sports events for Connecticut cable systems.[7] With his son, Scott, they had move beyond that considering a national sports channel doable.[7] RCA
RCA
had an underused satellite thus pushing for customers. Finding it cheaper to rent a satellite transponder full time instead of 5 hours a day, they changed their plans to a national channel.[8] Bill Rasmussen got the NCAA on February 7, 1979 in principal to grant ESPN
ESPN
broadcast rights for its sports. The next day at the Texas Cable Show, he was able to get cable companies on board. An advertising contract with Anheuser-Busch
Anheuser-Busch
was in talk at that time. Getty Oil
Getty Oil
came on board as its major source of capital. In 1979, Rasummen purchased the first acre for ESPN's headquarters in Bristol, Conn.[7] With a reasonable payment program in July 1979, Rasmussen leased RCA's Satcom 1 transponder using his credit card. Anheuser-Busch
Anheuser-Busch
became a major sponsor signing a $1.4 million ad contract, a record at the time. Getty Oil
Getty Oil
invested $10 million into ESPN
ESPN
getting a controlling stake in 1979.[8] On September 7, 1979, ESPN
ESPN
cable channel went on the air[7] with 24-hours of programming on the weekends and limited hours during the week. 625 cable system affiliates were signed up at launch and they had 1 million household subscribed total (out of 20 million households with cable). The channel's first game featured the Milwaukee Schlitzes and the Kentucky Bourbons slow-pitch world series softball.[8] In 1980, the company was named in a Texas divorce filing. Ground breaking for its headquarters took place.[7] Full time broadcasting began in September 1980. Additional programming at the time included weekly boxing matches.[8] NBC

Sports President Chet Simmons was hired to help run the cable channel. Simmons and Rasmussen were at odds with Getty Oil
Getty Oil
executives siding with Simmons. At the end of 1980, Rasmussen was removed as company president by Getty Oil
Getty Oil
executive for ESPN, Stuart Evey, relegating him to a ceremonial role. Rasmussen left in 1981 and sold his remaining stock in 1984.[7] Investing another $15 million into the company and no profits expected any time soon, Getty used management consultant McKinsey & Co. to assess ESPN's future. McKinsey's lead consultant was Roger Werner, who figured with another $120 million and five years ESPN
ESPN
would become a profit maker. Werner soon was hired by ESPN
ESPN
as vice-president of finance, administration, and planning and developed a new business plan. Werner developed a new revenue source beyond advertising by initiating revolutionary affiliate fees paid by the cable operators by number of subscribers starting at 6 cents. Between CBS
CBS
Cable folding in October 1982 and the new CEO, Bill Grimes, they convince most of the reluctant cable providers to pay. By 1985, the fee was 10 cents.[8] ESPN
ESPN
was the largest cable channel by the end of 1983 with 28.5 million households. Also in 1983, the company began distributing programming outside the US. ABC, Inc. purchased in January 1984 a 14% holding in the company followed by a June purchased of a controlling interest. Capital Cities Communications, Inc. bought ABC in early 1986 to form Capital Cities/ABC Inc. In 1988, Werner became ESPN's president and CEO.[8] Multichannel[edit] ESPN
