Behind Cosell’s Announcement of Lennon’s Death – New York Times (blog)

December 6, 2010, 6:37 am By TONI MONKOVIC Thirty years ago this week, on a “Monday Night Football” game involving the Patriots, Howard Cosell announced to the world that John Lennon had been shot and killed. How Cosell learned of the news is a story unto itself, the subject of an ESPN “Outside the Lines” show Sunday. Michael Hiestand, USA Today: ESPN producer Jeff Ausiello says Alan Weiss, a news producer for ABC’s New York station, had a motorcycle accident and was in the hospital Lennon was brought to — “and was plopped down next to him.” Weiss didn’t recognize Lennon, but overheard local police officers identify him — and then heard efforts cease in the room where Lennon was being treated.
