In an interview with Zachary Levin, Clancy told how he got his start: "I was at a cocktail party with Angelo (Dundee). And Barry Frank was there. He was president of CBS Sports. And we always used to joke around, Angelo and I. So Barry Frank says, 'Could you guys do that on the air?' I say, 'Sure.' The next week we were on the air from Italy."
