Ross Porter Has Numbers on Tip of His Tongue

October 05, 1985

Recently, I listened to Ross Porter for 100 consecutive TV sentences. He used numbers in 65 of them.

Then, I paid close attention to Vin Scully for 50 consecutive sentences. He used numbers in 23 of them.

Porter's NSP (numbers-sentence percentage) is .650, but Scully's is only .460.
