Showtime Sports VP/Creative Director Earl Flash Dies at 57

With Showtime since 1982, he had worked his way up from the mailroom

Showtime Sports’ Earl Flash, 57, died suddenly last week. He had started at Showtime in 1982 in the mailroom and worked his way up the professional ranks to become a pillar of the network’s sports team. As VP/creative director, Flash oversaw promotional materials, feature segments, and Emmy Award-winning feature-length series. He was one of the creators and lead producers of Showtime Sports’ signature series, All Access. Flash is survived by his wife, Julie, and two sons, Cameron and Samuel. 

“Earl’s legacy is one of loyalty, kindness, and genuine happiness,” Showtime Sports said in a statement. “Our thoughts are with his wife and two sons and his many friends at Showtime who are devastated by his passing.”
