1928 - Alderson High School - 1968


Jack Fleming

Bobby Black - February 6, 2012

Jack Fleming was the broadcast announcer for the W.Va. Mountaineers (both basketball and football) for 41 years!!  (1947-1959, 1962-1969, and 1974-1996.)  Born in Morgantown in 1924, ('23 ?), and died, I believe, in 2001.
Two things most folks  did not know about Jack. 1. His name was Leo W. Fleming, and 2. In WW 2 he was a navigator, (B-17?) and flew 23 combat missions.  Jack began his radio career while recuperating at Ashford General Hospital, (Greenbrier Hotel.)  Bobby Black
Any of you guys and gals remember Jack?
