Ted Patterson, who hosted afternoons and evenings at WBAL Baltimore (1090) in the 1970s, has passed away at the age of 76. Patterson also served as play-by-play announcer for UMBC and Towson State basketball and Morgan State and Navy football. In the early 1980s he called Baltimore Orioles games on TV.
“Ted was one of the most knowledgeable sportscasters around. He began his career in Boston writing and researching for [sportscaster] Curt Gowdy every morning,” WBAL colleague Tom Lattanzi told the Baltimore Sun. “Curt depended on Ted for accuracy each day and Ted came through. Ted was a very top sportscaster and a super friend and neighbor.”
