R.I.P. George Michael
Such sad news on Christmas Eve! At first I thought it must be the singer, but alas it was a sportscasting legend. I did not grow up in the DC Metro area, but the one thing I like most about DC Metro media is the News 4 team. I was familiar with George Michael through the Sports Machine syndicated show, but I didn’t learn just how great a guy he was until I got to see him on a regular basis. The camaraderie between him and the awesome Jim Vance was always a sight to behold and highly entertaining. And of course anyone who hired Lindsay Czarniak must be brilliant.
The tributes on tonight’s newscast actually brought a tear or two to my eye. What a remarkable guy and a remarkable career. You will be missed, George!
