Bill Hillgrove (born ca. 1940) is an American sports journalist, radio personality, and sports broadcaster.
Hillgrove was named the sports director for WTAE-TV in 1978 and acted as sports anchor for WTAE News.
The term seems to have been made up by radio personality/sports broadcaster Bill Hillgrove, who perceives this formation to be in use constantly throughout every Steelers offensive drive. No one is actually sure what he is talking about, but most agree that it is fun.
"I think so," said Panthers radio ..., 1 Jan 2006 [cached]
"I think so," said Panthers radio voice Bill Hillgrove."It's hard to get attention away from the Steelers this week, but people here know Pitt has a really good basketball team.There are people to whom this game matters.They know this team is doing very well.But, obviously, everybody's focused on the Steelers this week."
Hillgrove knows what he's talking about.He is the senior member of WTAE-TV's sports team and is in his 37th season as the radio voice of Pitt basketball.But it gets more interesting.Hillgrove is also in his 12th season as the voice of the Steelers.If he's managing to shift his focus for one night, certainly others in Pittsburgh can do the same.
Mid-Season Report, 6 Dec 2011 [cached]
The "Everyone Knows It But No One Wants To Say It" Story of the Year: Steelers announcer Bill Hillgrove, who has called three of the team's seven Super Bowls, has been way off this season and has even seemed unable to follow the play at times. Like most of Steeler Nation, I love Hillgrove and have enjoyed his calls over the years, but maybe it is time to start thinking about hanging it up. Both Jack Flemming and Myron Cope stayed in the booth longer than they should have, and Hillgrove is risking doing the same.

Bill Hillgrove, the Steelers Radio Network's play-by-play announcer and Cope's broadcast partner since 1994 (when he replaced the late Jack Fleming), said such a decision is a no-brainer.
