Many tears will be shed this Christmas in the District of Columbia. Longtime WRC TV sports anchor King George Michael passed away Christmas Eve after a long battle with cancer.
If you are hip to sports, hip to rock and roll or hip to broadcasting you know Mr. Michael. Before he started at WRC and started nationally telecast Sunday night sports panorama, The George Michael Sports Machine, he was the evening disc jockey at 77WABC, which, during the hey day of AM radio, let's say 1960 to 1980, give or take, was one the the most important radio stations on the planet. Mr. Michael was such a key jock that Rolling Stone magazine profiled him during the summer of '77.
Truly a hall of famer.
