Jim Healy when at KLAC

Jim Healy (1923-July 22, 1994) was a longtime Los Angeles, California, sports commentator (KLAC, 1961-65; KFWB, 1969; KABC-TV, 1969-84; KLAC, 1973-82; KMPC, 1984-94), whose daily solo radio show featured a number of sound effects and audio clips of famous sports personalities, which he played repeatedly to affect an acerbically humorous tone. He began at KMPC in 1950, fresh out of UCLA, writing for broadcaster Bob Kelley. Jim wrote for Bob for 11 years. He hosted "Here's Healy" on KBIG and also worked at KFWB, KABC-TV and KLAC. Jim was the nightly sports reporter on KABC-TV/Channel 7... ..."Is... it... true?" became one of his trademark lines.
