Championship Bowling was created by Schwimmer in the early 1950's and continued through the 1960's. It was credited with providing pro bowlers with a national platform from which they could form the PBA. All Star Golf was similarly credited with giving pro golfers a showcase to build their popularity and it spawned several similar shows that helped propel golf into a national TV franchise.
TVS Classic Sports Network was founded in 1973 as the first national commercial cable TV network. Called All Sports/All Day, it ran the Schwimmer shows back then as the channel established the cable TV network business. All Sports / All Day was absorbed into the TVS Television Network in 1987.
Other shows on the TVS Classic Sports Network include NASL Soccer, WFL Football, LPBT Bowlomg, LPGA Golf, AIAW Championships, ATP Tennis, College Basketball, IWA Wrestling, major college bowl games, Championship Boxing, NASCAR, SCORE, Grand Prix, GATR, and Indy Car Racing.
