The story did indeed break on Monday Night Football. ABC got the scoop because one of its employees had been in an accident and was waiting in the hospital ER when Lennon was brought in. ABC got his death confirmed, and Roone Arledge made the decision to have Howard Cosell deliver the bulletin from the booth rather than doing a cut-in from the studio in NY.
