George Abel - 2012

George Abel was the jack of all trades, which is just what was needed in radio and the early days of television. Taking a job at KSD radio in 1943, Abel soon found the new medium of television was a perfect match. In 1947, KSD-TV signed on with Abel as one of the original on-air employees.

Spanning 34 years, Abel played roles as program announcer/sports commentator, cowboy “Drygulch” on the The Wranglers Club show, a personality on the Charlotte Peters Show and then as announcer of Wrestling at the Chase on KPLR-TV Channel 11. He retired in 1981.
