Condolences to family and friends of veteran NEW YORK radio and TV sportscaster and former WNWK/NEWARK-NEW YORK owner GUY LEBOW, who died on THURSDAY (8/14) in NEW YORK at 92.
LEBOW, a fixture in NEW YORK sports broadcasting who did recreations of GIANTS baseball games for WMCA-A after the team moved to SAN FRANCISCO for the 1958 season and also anchored sports at WNBC-A and WABC-TV, was the head of GLOBAL BROADCASTING GROUP, which operated WNWK (the former WHBI, now WCAA) after the FCC revoked the license of COSMOPOLITAN BROADCASTING CO. in 1982 and before the permanent license was awarded to MULTICULTURAL BROADCASTING in 1992. His voice also appeared as a sportscaster (in a parody of radio sports legend BILL STERN) in WOODY ALLEN's film "RADIO DAYS" in 1987; LEBOW also wrote two books.
