I would like to extend an hearty Blue Heaven congratulations to Dodgers broadcaster Charley Steiner. This coming Saturday, he will be inducted in the National Radio Hall of Fame in Chicago. Check out his biography at the National Radio Hall of Fame, here.
Steiner joins 7 other radio legends being honored that evening; which also includes Los Angeles area Spanish broadcaster Eddie “Piolín” Sotelo. BTW, past inductees include Vin Scully, Red Barber, Mel Allen, Harry Carey, Ronald Reagan and Ernie Harwell.
Charley Steiner has quite a resume. He started his career in 1969 in Peoria, Illinois and quickly moved on to Davenport in 1971 to host his first sports show. Since then, Steiner has has worked for WOR in New York, a sports director for RKO, was an ESPN sportscaster, did play-by-play for the Yankees with WCBS, then radio/television duties for the Dodgers. Over that span he has won the Emmy 4-times.
