   Bob Teague '49, who deftly
 picked his way through the conven-

 Bob returned to his hometown, Mil-
 waukee, where he began a journal-

There he covered every major sport
including college and pro football,
major league and championship box-
ing events. During one period, he
shared reporting duties of the New
York Yankees with John Drebinger,
an ace Times sportswriter.
  NBC News brought Teague into
the fold in January, 1963. The 1964

he had ever covered and, as ex-

assignments have ranged from a se-

a role in the Broadway show, "Milk
