Aron Bender talks with Southern California sports journalism icon Ted Sobel. He's worked for KNX, KFWB and KMPC, among others. Ted's covered every major sporting event you can think of, and met all kinds of superstars. He tells great stories in his new book, “Touching Greatness: Tales from the Front Row with Heroes and Legends.” And he tells great stories in this episode! We talk a lot about Kobe Bryant, Ted’s boyhood idol Elgin Baylor, and why Eli Manning and David Tyree tracked him down after their improbable Super Bowl win.
