Legendary Sportscaster Jim McKay passed away of natural causes at his home in Maryland today. He was 86. McKay began his television career at a Baltimore TV station before heading to CBS Sports. However, he was best known for his work with ABC Sports where he hosted “ABC’s Wide World of Sports” beginning in 1961. Also to his credit were 12 Olympic coverages, most notably Munich in 1972 where he became the anchor after Palestinian terrorists kidnapped 11 Israeli olympians. McKay’s son, Sean McManus who is president of CBS News and Sports, told the AP, “Hardly a day goes by when someone doesn’t come up to me and say how much they admired my father.” No funeral arrangements have been made.
