During his tenure as a broadcaster he covered a wide variety of sports and was known for his sparser dialogue. On television he let the film do most of the talking and peppered the play-by-plays with exclamations such as his famous “Hey-hey.” In 2000, two years after his death a memorial statue was erected on Chicago’s Michigan Avenue, displaying his bust and his famous phrase so generations of Chicago sports fans can pay tribute to his legacy.
