In my research, the earliest sports highlight/recap show that I could find is a program called "ABC Sports Review", hosted by Joe Hasel. According to the third edition of "Total Television", by Alex McNeil, "ABC Sports Review" was a 15-minute roundup of the week's sports news, and ran from August 1948 to April 1949.
I do not have a link to the specific entry in McNeil's book, but I do have a link to McNeil's book, as it is available on Amazon.com.
I saw an Author Challenge with the topic "The First", and thought that would be an appropriate topic for my first authoring attempt. Ten questions about famous/important/interesting firsts, covering several different subjects. Enjoy!
