Default Myron Cope is retiring.

PITTSBURGH (June 21, 2005) -- Longtime Pittsburgh Steelers radio broadcaster Myron Cope is retiring.

Cope, known for his screeching, nasal delivery of exclamations such as "Yoi!" and "Double Yoi!" has broadcast games on the Steelers Radio Network since 1970.

He also created the Terrible Towel, a black-and-gold good-luck charm that fans wave at games. Hundreds of thousands have been sold at $5 to $10 each, with profits going to charity.

His retirement follows an injury in November, when he apparently fell at his home and hit his head the day before a game. He went to Heinz Field for the game, but couldn't continue beyond the first half and was taken to a hospital.
