    George Michael dies on Thurs, 24

    WASHINGTON -- George Michael, a veteran Washington sportscaster who gained national recognition with his syndicated "The George Michael Sports Machine" highlights show, died Thursday. He was 70.

    Michael's daughter, Michelle Allen, said Michael died from complications of chronic lymphocytic leukemia at Sibley Memorial Hospital.

    Michael worked at Washington's WRC-TV for 28 years until his resignation in 2008. The Washington Post said Michael left the station over budget cuts his programs were facing.

    "George was the consummate reporter and a valuable friend," Washington Redskins owner Daniel Snyder said in a statement. "I doubt we'll ever again see a sports reporter who was so admired by the people he covered."

    Information from The Associated Press was used in this report.

    Yeah same here, I like his music (even though he has too many songs about homosexuality).

    Considering the confusion, this thread will likely end up with a heap of views but not as many replies.

    Strange, I was flying the last couple days and thought about him, and what he was doing... as his show used to run often on the airlines I flew... the days before having personal screens.

    A time for families to get together and celebrate, I hope his family finds peace during Christmas and New Year.

    I'm not a sports person, but I have been watching George Michael on our local news since I moved to the DC area in 1995. I feel very sad about his death, but at least he's no longer suffering.

    I'll admit it. I was one gasp away from being shocked...... George Michael's can not die before 2012.
