"Boss Jock" George Michael dies

He was part of the crew at the old WFIL.

The Washington Post today reports the death of George Michael, who was a popular WFIL "Boss Jock" during its heyday (1966-74) and went on to become a popular sportscaster in Washington, D.C., with "The George Michael Sports Machine."

"King George," who had a two-year battle with cancer, was 70.

Funeral services will be in the D.C. area sometime in January.

Here's background from the Broadcast Pioneers of Philadelphia.
