He and Larry O'Brien were commentators for the first telecast of a Grey Cup football game 29 November 1952 on CBLT Toronto. CBC paid both Marshall and O'Brien CAD$250 for this inaugural broadcast. He was inducted into the Canadian Football Hall of Fame in 1989.
Marshall's radio broadcasting career began with CKTB in St. Catharines, Ontario, first singing for the station then announcing. In 1940, he was broadcasting for CHML at Hamilton, Ontario. When CHCH-TV began broadcasts in that city in 1954, Marshall was among its first personalities.
The Fred Sgambati Media Award was awarded to Marshall in 1988 for his broadcast work for university sports.
