  Message Not Read  Ken Broo and Tom McKee retire from WCPO
   Posted: 1/2/2019 10:01:52 AM 
Ohio alumni Ken Broo and Tom McKee retired from WCPO-TV last month. They combined for 67 years on Cincy TV. Ken was a classmate of mine and Tom was a year ahead of us. Tom also was in the 110. Here are a couple of stories about them:

Actually, the phrase is "Ohio on the Charles."

Broo is my favorite personality on 700 WLW. Not just for his insights on area sports, but also his vast knowledge about rock-n-roll history. Not to mention his occasional shout out to his alma mater, The Ohio University.

Ken Broo tried out for the hockey team as a goalie in the mid-70s. Not terrible but was waaaay down the depth chart. Nice guy. He used to sit on the bench and do play by play of practice into the butt end of his goalie stick. I guess he found his niche in the game.

Seconded. Sunday morning Sports Talk is a frequent listen in my house/car. I'm of the understanding Ken is going to continue to do that, and occasional spot duty at WLW.


Henceforth, you will be known as The Bobcat "Message Board Avenger"
