ABC Sports Broadcaster. His broadcasting career spanned over six decades. He is best remembered for his coverage of 11 Olympic telecasts and over six hundred appearances on ABC's "Wide World of Sports." A graduate of the University of Michigan, he began his broadcasting career in 1949 at WWJ-TV in Detroit, Michigan, eventually becoming the station's sports director. He made his first national appearance on NBC's "Today" show in the late 1950s before moving to the rival ABC network in 1961. In addition to his extensive work on "Wide World of Sports," he was also a fixture on ABC college football telecasts, as well as the host of major golfing tournaments. He died from complications of prostate cancer at age of 80. (bio by: Nils M. Solsvik Jr.)
