business news in context, analysis with attitude

Jim McKay, who became known on ABC’s “Wide World of Sports” as a unique and passionate storyteller and who popularized the phrase, “the thrill of victory and agony of defeat,” died Saturday at age 86. Despite his longtime work in the area of sports, he is perhaps best remembered for his 16 hours of straight anchoring of ABC’s when Arab terrorists invaded the living quarters of Israel’s athletes participating in the 1972 Olympics in Munich.
