Jim Mueller, a WJ(K)W and WKYC sportscaster and Cleveland Browns color analyst from 1975-95 has passed away.

He was also a longtime spokesperson for (Ed) Mullinax Ford and Pat O'Brien Chevrolet.  I'm sure anyone growing up in Northeast Ohio remembers the jingle.

 

I don't see anything except for a few tweets.

 

He was also the PA Announcer at Browns games, but I know him best as the PA Announcer at ISC-owned tracks. Heard his voice numerous times at Michigan International Speedway. He was the pre-race track host and did things like announce the driver introductions. May he R.I.P.

Here's a link to a WKYC story.  He served as the prior sports director to Jim Donovan, after his time at WJKW.

I imagine most of you saw that NFL hall-of-famer Len Dawson (Chiefs, KMBC-TV, HBO, etc.) died today at age 87. KMBC-TV is in the middle of an hour-long special about Dawson. You might check their website at a later time to see if they upload the whole thing.

I remember Bret Lewis was the 10pm sports anchor at KDFW in the early 1980's before moving to South Florida's 7.
