KYW Newsradio is reporting that long-time sportscaster Jack O'Rourke, 80, died last night after covering the Phillies game for the station.
It is the second veteran staffer at the station to die within a week. Karin Phillips, 53, of Mount Laurel, a familiar voice on KYW Newsradio as its community-affairs reporter, died Tuesday, Sept. 13, after a brief illness.
O'Rourke was originally a news anchor at the station and once served as City Hall Bureau Chief, the station says.
He moved on to sports, covering not only the Phillies but the Olympics and other events.
