In Memoriam: Jim McKay

Longtime ABC sportscaster Jim McKay, who hosted "ABC's Wide World of Sports," covered 12 Olympics and covered the 1972 Munich hostage crisis, died today in Maryland of natural causes. He was 86.

ESPN has more here. My prayers go out to his family. His son, Sean McManus, is the president of CBS News & Sports. I'm sure that during ABC's coverage of the Belmont Stakes, they will have a moving tribute to McKay.
