Sportscaster Jack Buck to be honored posthumously at NAB2005


Legendary sportscaster Jack Buck will be honored posthumously at National Association of Broadcasters convention when he is inducted into the NAB Broadcasting Hall of Fame.

The late Jack Buck, legendary announcer for the St. Louis Cardinals, will be inducted April 19 into the NAB Broadcasting Hall of Fame at NAB2005 in Las Vegas. His wife, Carole, will accept the award.

Buck, who died in 2002, is widely regarded as one of sport's greatest announcers. He was the voice of the St. Louis Cardinals on KMOX/St. Louis from 1954 to 2001 and covered almost every professional sport.

Buck's career included work for the CBS Radio Network and play-by-play assignments of the 1965 and 1976 All-Star Games, the National League Championship Series from 1979 to 1982, and the World Series from 1982 to 1989. His signature call was "That's a winner!"
