Veteran Cleveland Sportswriter Dies

Though we don’t spend a lot of time dealing with the print media, OMW would feel remiss not passing this along.

The Cleveland Plain Dealer reports that veteran Cleveland sportswriter and editor Hal Lebovitz has died at the age of 89. Lebovitz most recently worked for the Lake County News-Herald as a weekly columnist, but was also once sports editor of the PD, and worked at the old Cleveland News. He was nationally famous for his “Ask Hal, The Referee” column in the Sporting News.

In addition to what we’re sure are thousands of local sports talk radio appearances, Lebovitz was one of the regular panelists on Les Levine’s Adelphia cable TV sports talk show. We’re sure Levine will talk about Hal’s passing on his program tonight (6 PM live, 11 PM repeat, Adelphia 15).
