Warner Wolf was the sports anchor on CBS-TV in New York for umpteen years. Viewers loved him for his humorous style, filled with trademark aphorisms, and for his surprising lack of timidity in confronting the core issues any time there was an in-depth story.
Warner was loud, his voice rarely dropping below bullhorn levels, but he had a liveliness that made everything he said fun to listen to. Even at the end of the story, when he would wind down, he was more attention-getting than most reporters can be in an entire day.
One of the most popular features he would do on the show is the highlight reel. His annual best-of clips special, with bloopers and sound bites from sports events from the nationally important to the local and bizarre, was a New York institution.
I can honestly say I have yet to see anyone in t.v. sports I like better.moreless
