The word “legend” is tossed around cavalierly, sometimes by this reporter. But there’s no mistaking that News 12 sportscaster Bob Wolff as a genuine legend.
Logging 73 years and counting, Wolff was recognized last night by Guinness World Records for having the longest career as a sportscasting. Wolff, who has spent the last quarter-century of his remarkable professional life at News 12 Long Island.
“[I've] been so lucky to have had the great opportunity to have a sportscasting career,” Wolff said during the live on-set presentation.
Wolff described his feelings about coming to work every day, even at his advanced age of 91.
“I’m doing something that I enjoy,” Wolff said. “It’s exciting, and basically it is not work.”
