Yogi Museum To Screen ‘Glickman’ With Ian Eagle Feb. 11

GlickmanFor over a half century, Marty Glickman was the pre-eminent voice of New York sports – and perhaps the most influential sports broadcaster of all time.

Beginning as radio announcer of the original New York Knicks n 1946, he created a now-familiar sports lexicon, including swish! Yet Glickman – who would also become the distinctive voice of the Giants and Jets and Yonkers Raceway, etc. – became almost as famous for what he did not do. A great track athlete, he was denied the opportunity to compete on the U.S. Olympic team during the 1936 Berlin Games due to anti-Semitism.

The Yogi Berra Museum in Little Falls, N.J., will screen the acclaimed James Freedman documentary Glickman on Feb. 11 at 7:30 p.m., The film will be followed by a discussion with Ian Eagle, one of many professional broadcasters mentored by Glickman, who is also highlighted in the Museum’s current exhibit, “Now Doing the Talking,” a tribute to pioneer athletes-turned-broadcasters.

Tickets for Glickman are $15. To RSVP call (973) 655-2378.
