    Default Stu Nahan Dead At 81

    I just realized that nothing had been posted about this. Anyone who has seen Rocky, Fast Times At Ridgemont High, or Brian's Song will maybe remember this legendary sportscaster. If you grew up in Los Angeles, he was a mainstay for local sports for close to forty years. He will definitely be missed.


    STU NAHAN:
    LOS ANGELES SPORTSCASTING LEGEND: DEAD AT 81

    (December 27th, 2007 9:00AM PST)

    BY ERS NEWS





    Los Angeles sportscaster Stu Nahan, died yesterday at age 81. Nahan had been battling lymphoma. Nathan is survived by his wife and four children.

    Nahan was raised in Montreal, Canada. He was a goaltender for minor league hockey teams in Pittsburgh and Los Angeles before becoming the play-by-play announcer for the Modesto Reds, a minor league baseball team, in 1956.

    Nahan's next job was as a sportscaster at KCRA-TV in Sacramento, where he also hosted a children's show and was known as “Skipper Stu.” He moved to Philadelphia, where he announced Philadelphia Flyers hockey games and hosted a children's show on WKBS-TV Channel 48.

    Stu Nahan came to Los Angeles in 1968 as a sportscaster on KABC-TV until 1977. He then worked at KNBC-TV from 1977-86 and KTLA-TV from 1988-99.

    Nahan also hosted a sports talk show host at KABC radio and appeared on Los Angeles Dodgers-related programming on KFWB before retiring in 2004.

    In 1976 Nahan was cast to appear in what would become one of Hollywood's most famous films. "Rocky'', Sylvester Stallone's rags to riches story of fictional boxer "Rocky Balboa" would go on to receive the best picture Oscar and spawn five sequels. Nahan appeared in all of the films.

    Nahan also appeared in the 1982 film "Fast Times at Ridgemont High", interviewing surfer Jeff Spicoli, played by Sean Penn.

    Too funny. When I saw the thread title I came in here to post the same thing thinking I was pulling out one of the more obscure Fast Times quotes.

    Just goes to show there are no obscure Fast Times quotes. I bet every one of us could recite the entire movie.
