Legendary Sports Broadcaster Bob Wolff Passes Away At 96

He was in sports broadcasting for nearly 80 years.

Bob Wolff, one of the most-iconic sports broadcasters to ever live, has passed away at the age of 96.

The broadcaster, who called games for nearly 80 years, has been the voice of a number of legendary sporting events.

Wolff called Don Larsen’s perfect game in the 1956 World Series, the Colts-Giants NFL championship game (the "greatest game ever played" according to many), multiple NBA Finals, the Rose Bowl, the Gator Bowl, the Sugar Bowl and many others.

In 2012, Guinness World Records said he'd had the longest career of any sports broadcaster.

Wolff attended Duke University and is a New York native.

He passed away on Saturday in South Nyack, N.Y.

Rest in peace, Bob.
