You may have heard of him. He hosted what became The George Michael Sports Machine, a nationally syndicated sports highlight show. And you may have heard him without even knowing it: he had a cameo in The Silence of the Lambs, appearing on a newscast ("I'm Gene Castle with sports"), because director Jonathan Demme was a fan of Michael's from his days in rock radio (he'd broadcast in Philadelphia then New York).
Here is the Washington Post obit for Michael.
I hope there's some mention or acknowledgement of him in Sunday's Redskins-Cowboys game.
