Action News Sports Director Gary Papa Passes Away

Without a doubt, Gary Papa was the best television sports director in Philadelphia. He was named to that position in 1990, and for most of his time at the job, the sports landscape in this city was, well, depressing. The Phillies were terrible, the Eagles were terrible, the Sixers were terrible, and the Flyers weren't all that great either. But that didn't matter, because everytime you turned on channel six to watch a sports report, Gary had a smile on his face. He loved Philadelphia sports and he loved his job.

Gary Papa, dead at 54 after a long battle with prostate cancer. He will be missed.
