Bob Murphy , ASA member and longtime New York Mets sportscaster, died on August 3, 2004, at a hospice in West Palm Beach, Fla., from lung cancer. He was 79. Murphy, who retired after the 2003 season, was a fixture in the Mets broadcast booth since the team’s inception in 1962. Before coming to New York, Murphy worked with ASA Hall of Famer Curt Gowdy calling Boston Red Sox games from 1954-59. After spending two years in Baltimore, Murphy was chosen as the nuts and bolts broadcaster to join nationally known Lindsey Nelson and former player Ralph Kiner as the broadcasting trio for the newly formed Mets franchise. Along the way, Murphy has called over 6,000 Mets games. But maybe none have been more memorable than Game 6 of the 1986 World Series when the Mets were trying to keep a rally alive in the 10th inning. “It gets by Buckner!,” Murphy’s call of Mookie Wilson’s ground ball that rolled through the legs of Boston Red Sox first basemen Bill Buckner, still brings a smile to the face of every Mets fan. That fluke play forced a Game 7 which the Mets won to become World Champions. Murphy, who was born in Oklahoma, began his broadcasting career with the Class C Muskogee Reds after coming out of the Marines at the end of WWII. Besides baseball, he has done college basketball and football, New York Titans football and one season of “Bowling for Dollars.” In 1994, Murphy was inducted into the Broadcasters’ Wing of the Baseball Hall of Fame. Lon Simmons , legendary Bay area broadcaster, received the Ford C. Frick Award during the annual Induction Ceremonies at the Baseball Hall of Fame in Cooperstown, NY, on July 25, 2004. An original voice of the Giants when they moved west, Simmons called games for San Francisco and the Oakland A's for 41 years before retiring after the 2002 season. When the Giants moved to San Francisco in 1958, Russ Hodges was the only announcer to make the move, and Simmons joined him for the team's initial broadcasts at Seals Stadium. Simmons and Hodges worked together for 13 years before Simmons retired in 1973 after the death of his first wife. He returned to the Giants in 1976 for three more years, then moved across the bay to Oakland, where he teamed with Bill King to broadcast Athletics games from 1981-95. In 1996, he returned to the Giants and worked a partial schedule until his retirement in 2002. Simmons broadcast the pennant-winning Giants team of 1962 and the A's teams which reached the World Series from 1988 to 1990. He counts as his biggest thrills calling the 600th home run of Willie Mays and the dramatic home run that marked the return of Willie McCovey to San Francisco in 1977. For those and many other home runs, Simmons gave his trademark call of "tell it goodbye! Lowell "Cotton" Fitzsimmons , ASA member and longtime announcer for the Phoenix Suns, died on July 24 due to complications from lung cancer. He was 72.

In April, a malignant tumor was found on Fitzsimmons' lung and he had been in a Phoenix-area care center since suffering a stroke earlier this month.

Before his work as a sportscaster, Fitzsimmons coached in the NBA for 21 seasons. His record of 832-775 ranks him 10th in career vistories. Fitzsimmons also served as executive vice president of the Suns, a team he coached on three occassions. Bob Brenly , recently fired as manager of the Arizona Diamondbacks, is one of the candidates being considered by Fox to work as a game analyst for this year's NLCS. If the New York Mets don't make the playoffs, Mets pitcher Al Leiter , who worked the NLCS for Fox last year, is also a strong possibility. Chris Wragge is the new sports anchor at WCBS-TV Channel 2. He replaced longtime New York sports anchor Warner Wolf who was recently let go. Wragge will likely work some national telecasts for CBS. Shannon Sharpe , former All-Pro tightend, signed a deal with Sirius NFL Radio that will give him a three-day-a-week, three-hour football talk show. Sharpe also replaced Deion Sanders as a studio analyst on CBS' "The NFL Today." John Davidson , New York Rangers TV announcer for 18 years, signed a multi-year contract extension with MSG network to remain with the club. Tom Cheek , ASA member and veteran Toronto Blue Jays radio announcer, is recovering after undergoing surgery to remove a brain tumor on June 13. Charles Chitwood , ASA member and voice of East Texas Baptist University and Jefferson High School athletics, was named the play-by-play voice of the Bossier-Shreveport Battle Wings Arena Football team. ESPN signed a four-year deal with the International Skating Union to broadcast figure skating and the World Figure Skating Championships. The deal, which starts in November and averages $5 million a year, is down from the just-expired ABC contract that averaged $22 million a year. David Briggs , former weekend anchor for Fox affiliate Channel 23 in Tulsa, Okla, has been hired by WHDH-TV Channel 7 in Boston. The hiring brings the station's sports department back to full strength for the first time in a year. Michele Tafoya , ASA member and NBA sideline reporter for ABC and ESPN, is the new sideline reporter for ABC's "Monday Night Football." She replaces fellow ASA member Lisa Guerrero who will continue to do other assignments for the network. Rick Majerus , former University of Utah basketball coach, will become an ESPN analyst on college basketball and possibly the NBA this season. Mike Ditka , former head coach of the Chicago Bears and New Orleans Saints, has joined ESPN on its NFL show, "Monday Quarterback." Ditka will also contribute to other shows on the network. Tiki Barber , New York Giants running back, has decided he will not continue doing his weekly radio show, "The Tiki Lounge," on ESPN Radio. According to Barber, his decision had nothing to do with new Giants head coach Tom Coughlin and the strict guidelines he sets for his players. Barber's show aired every Thursday during the football season from 6-7 . Ross Coyle , ASA member of ABC 6 in Providence, Rhode Island, recently won the 2004 Associated Press Award for Best Sports Feature. Rich Ackerman was hired by NBA TV as a studio host. Ackerman worked at ESPN radio and hosted the 1997 NBA Draft Lottery, "The NBA on ESPN" studio show and the WNBA finals before joining WFAN and NBA TV. The NYU graduate handles updates for WFAN.
