On August 26 at 9 PM HBO premiered "Glickman" a documentary by James Freedman about the life of broadcaster Marty Glickman. Marty was special to all of us here at WFUV, especially the students he taught in a 12-year period between 1988-2000. 
 
Spero Dedes.

HBO's "Glickman"

In the latest HBO documentary, Glickman, about revered sportscaster Marty Glickman premiering tonight at 9pm, director James Freedman seems intent on paying homage to his subject’s humanity just as much as his legendary resume of work. The first athlete turned play-by-play commentator, Glickman, who passed away in 2001, became a pioneer for sportscasters, calling everything from basketball and football at the professional level to the trotters at Yonkers raceway and inspiring listeners and future broadcasters, notably many who came through the halls at WFUV.

The New York Jets have selected Dee Milliner and Sheldon Richardson as the 9th and 13th picks in the NFL Draft respectively. The selections are defensive heavy to say the least. Dee Milliner is a cornerback who will be expected to fill the spot that has been left with the loss of Darrelle Revis. But General Manager John Idzick said the selection of Milliner was not made just to fill shoes.
