FAN TRUBUTE: Zabel An ‘Icon’
Not many people leave this world with the title ‘legend’ and ‘icon.’ Jim Zabel is one of the exceptions.
The broadcast legend and icon passed away yesterday at the age of 91.
Zabel was the voice of the Hawkeyes for 50 years, working play-by-play for both football and basketball.
Zabel worked at WHO TV and radio for 69 years. And you’ll be hard pressed to find another Jim Zabel anytime soon.
Colleagues and fans come together to remember Z.
