This year, the capital region lost a local sports broadcasting legend and WKAR lost a close friend. For 39 years, Earle Robinson was the host of WKAR’s SportsTalk until his retirement in 2013. Robinson passed away at the age of 71 in May. WKAR's Karel Vega was joined by Al Martin, host of WKAR’s Current Sports to discuss Robinson's upcoming Celebration Of Life and his legacy.
