Why don't we get sportscasters like that anymore?

It was announced yesterday that 30 year sports anchor and WBZ-TV will be parting ways and it is the end of an era.
Steve Buckley in the Herald gives Lobel a nice sendoff.

Bob almost got fired on his first night when he ran this brawl during a Bruins game and the Bruins back then said a station could not show fights.

I miss his old Sports Spotlight days which used to run every Thursday night on the 11 PM newscast.

He will be missed.

Also shown the door was Joyce Kulhawik the long time entertainment reporter.

Here is Joyce interviewing the then unknown Conan O'Brien before his first show on NBC in 1993

Also in 1993 she looked back at some great events she had covered for the station

and how she helped cover the last night of CHEERS on Beacon Hill along with Liz Walker
