    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!

    Ill second and third those thoughts and prayers for Myron as well. I had a chance to meet him a few years back and get some autographs and just talk some Steelers football with him and he was such a gentlemen and took time out of his way to stop and talk with me and my friend for a good while. We know you are a fighter Myron you have pulled through in the past before and we are hoping and praying you do so again. You are what Pittsburgh Steelers football is all about.

    He's a Steeler through and through, one of the most recognizable people and voices in sports. It's such a shame we can't hear him in the booth any more, he is a true legend in broadcasting.
