Condolences to family and friends of longtime LAS VEGAS sportscaster BOB BLUM, who died SUNDAY of complications from hip surgery at 91.
BLUM arrived in LAS VEGAS in 1973 after several years calling games for several teams in CALIFORNIA, mostly in the BAY AREA. He became the voice of UNIVERSITY OF NEVADA-LAS VEGAS sports, calling RUNNING REBELS football and men's and women's basketball, and also served in the front office for LAS VEGAS' minor league baseball franchise (the STARS/51s), also working as the team's radio voice at times.
