Best of Boston

1999 Best TV, Sports Anchor

Bob Lobel, WBZ, Channel 4

Sure, Lobel can come across as obnoxious at times, courting controversy for its own sake. But he and the rest of the Channel 4 sports crew aren’t afraid to ask tough questions of players and management alike. And his late-night Sunday show Sports Final is a must-see, even if you don’t suffer from insomnia. His resident legal expert, Boston lawyer Harry Manion III, provided the smartest play-by-play analysis of the Reggie Lewis medical-malpractice trial in town.
