Dick is the son of former chairman of the American Cancer Society, Roberts Ebersol, and his wife Mary. Dick attended Yale University, but left in 1967when invited by Roone Arledge to join ABC Sports as television’s first-ever Olympic researcher.

After several years at ABC, in 1974 he moved to NBC, and has worked there ever since. He became Director of Weekend Late Night Programming in 1974, and the following year he co-joined Lorne Michaels to create and launch “Saturday Night Live”. He was then promoted to Vice-President of Late Night Programming, at just 28 years of age, becoming the first in NBC`s history before turning 30. He left SNL for a brief time in the early 1980s, but returned and stayed in the program until 1985.

Four years later, he became president of NBC Sports, and in 1998 he was promoted to the position of Chairman NBC Sports & Olympics, which thrived during his management, as he acquired rights to every Olympic Games from 1992 until 2012. Also, during the 1990s NBC Sports were the only network to telecast three major American sports finals, the World Series, Super Bowl and NBA Finals..

In 2003, Dick signed a new contract with the NBC, which would last for nine years, and it certainly increased his net worth further. However, in 2011 he decided to quit NBC Sports & Olympics, but stayed on the network, working as senior adviser for the NFL 2011 season.
Dick also started his own production company, entitled No Sleep Productions, and was executive producer for several popular shows, including “Friday Night Videos”, “Later with Bob Costas”, “Saturday Night’s Main Event”, among many others, all of which added to his net worth.

During his career, Dick has received numerous prestigious awards, including three Primetime Emmy Awards; first one in category Outstanding Graphic and Title Design for his work on “Friday Night Videos”, the second in the category Outstanding Variety, Music or Comedy Special for “Turin 2006: XX Olympic Winter Games”, and the third in the category Outstanding Special Class Programs for his work on “Beijing 2008: Games of the XXIX Olympiad”. Furthermore, he was inducted into the U.S. Olympic Hall of Fame and the Broadcasting & Cable Hall of Fame in 2005, and in 2009 he was the recipient of an Emmy Award for Lifetime Achievement by National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences. Most recently, he was awarded the Paul White Award, given by the Radio Television Digital News Association, among many other awards.

Regarding his personal life, Dick has been married to Susan Saint James since 1981; the couple had three children, however, his son Teddy, died in a plane crash which left him and his other son severely injured. One of his sons is Charlie Ebersol, who is also a television and film producer, and director as well. Previously Dick was married to Susan Stafford from 1976 until 1981.
