Condolences to family and friends of former BOSTON sports talker GEORGE BENT, who died SATURDAY of a heart-related illness at 86.
BENT, a lawyer by day, was one of the three co-hosts of "SPORTSCOPE," a pioneering sports talk show that aired on several BOSTON-area stations in the '60s through the '80s, starting on WBOS and later on WITS-A, WMRE-A, and WEEI-A. BENT's co-hosts, ELI SCHLIEFER and TEDDY SULLIVAN, predeceased BENT.
