|Bill King --Hall of Famer|
Bill King was the greatest radio play-by-play broadcaster ever.

I'm delighted King has got his due; felt he might never get this award. Knowing Bill, as I did covering Bay Area Sports in the 80's and 90's, this type of award; prestigious and grand as it is, would be the last thing on Bill King's mind. He was that way.

Those of you that remember those days will agree with me we'll never be witness to someone broadcasting three sports --in the same year--as Bill King did. The Coliseum in Oakland was his second home. The legitimate "House of Thrills", as Curt Gowdy named it while broadcasting Raiders' games for NBC.
