Condolences to family and friends of longtime CUMULUS News-Talk WGOW-F (TALKRADIO 102.3)/CHATTANOOGA sports reporter and "SPORTTALK" afternoon show host GARY "DR. BASKETBALL" HASKEW, who died MONDAY (7/4) of a massive heart attack. He was 74.
A statement from Interim PD BILL LOCKHART said, “GARY was an incredible talent, an excellent storyteller, a true original, and the largest of larger-than-life characters. In a world of wanna-bes, posers, and imitators, GARY was the genuine article; a man’s man, an entertainer extraordinaire, with a love for people. We are all lucky to have had GARY in our lives”.
