Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Charles L. "Chuck" Thompson (June 10, 1921-March 6, 2005) was an American sportscaster best known for his broadcasts of Major League Baseball's Baltimore Orioles and the National Football League's Baltimore Colts. He was well-recognized for his resonant voice, crisply descriptive style of play-by-play, and signature on-air exclamations "Go to war, Miss Agnes!" and "Ain't the beer cold!."Thompson was born in Palmer, Massachusetts and moved with his family to Reading, Pennsylvania in 1927. He began his broadcasting career in 1939 at WRAW-AM in Reading, working there until 1942. After spending only a month at WKBN-AM in Youngstown, Ohio that same year, he joined WIBG-AM in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania as an on-air announcer. His career was interrupted in October, 1943 when he was inducted into the United States Army.show more
