Meet the Author

Bob Wolff is the longest running broadcaster in television and radio history, now in his ninth decade behind the microphone.
The only broadcaster in history to call the championships of all four major pro sports, his historic calls include Don Larsen’s legendary perfect game in the 1956 World Series and the 1958
NFL Championship Game between the New York Giants and
Baltimore Colts (“The Greatest Game Ever Played”). Wolff was the television and/or radio play-by-play voice of The New York
Knicks and New York Rangers for twenty-seven years. In addition to his enshrinement in both the baseball and basketball Halls of Fame, he has also been honored with induction into Madison
Square Garden’s Walk of Fame and the National Sportscasters and
Sportswriters Hall of Fame. In 2009, the broadcast booth at Nationals Park in Washington was named in his honor. At the age of 92, Wolff is still sportscasting on television and radio.
