Unhappy Myron still Hospitalized

Hall of fame broadcaster still hospitalized
Thursday, January 17, 2008
By Ed Bouchette, Pittsburgh Post-Gazette
Former Steelers broadcaster Myron Cope remains in a local hospital with little change in his condition or prognosis since he was admitted in late November.

Cope, who turns 79 Jan. 23, has battled various health ailments the past year including recurring cases of pneumonia. He has been in the hospital's intensive care unit.

Cope retired as the Steelers color analyst on their radio network before the 2005 season after 35 consecutive years on the job. A former sports writer for the Post-Gazette and nationally known book and magazine author, Cope entered broadcasting in 1968 with WTAE Radio. He became the host of a widely popular nightly sports radio talk show, beginning in '73 and lasting into '95. He also worked as a sports commentator for WTAE television. And, of course, he developed and popularized the Terrible Towel.

The Steelers honored Cope at a ceremony at a home game in 2005 when they presented him with his own team jersey.

Cope won numerous awards during his years in journalism, his most coveted two most recently. He became the first pro football announcer selected for the National Radio Hall of Fame, joining the likes of Bob Hope, Edward R. Murrow, Orson Welles and Vin Scully. And he was presented the Pete Rozelle Radio and Television Award at Pro Football Hall of Fame ceremonies in Canton, Ohio.

Man, I still miss Myron in the booth. Even when the Steelers were down in a game you could always rely on Myron to entertain you, and make a bad situation seem OK. Prayers with ya Myron, and Yoi! Get better soon!
