Bob Costas Eulogizes Jim McKay One of my favorite sportscasters eulogizes another: Bob Costas talks about the late Jim McKay, who passed away on June 7, 2008. McKay was the host of ABC's Wide World of Sports for 36 years and hosted 12 Olympic Games for ABC. He is most famous for the extreme professionalism he showed in covering the hostage situation at the 1972 Munich Olympics.

When the hostage-taking occurred in Munich, McKay was supposed to have the day off. Instead ABC literally plucked him from a hotel swimming pool and rushed him to their broadcast studio. McKay spent the next 15 hours skillfully relaying updates about the crisis--his damp swimsuit under his trousers. It was a great day for television jounrnalism.
