590 MIGHTY MEMORY #364

WHEN KELLY MET "THE SNAKE" 

Kelly Reed was one of the premier Sports reporters in WARMland in the late 80s and 90s. Reed worked closely with the legendary Ron Allen when WARM had a hybrid format which concentrated on Sports in the evening. During the morning shows, Reed worked closely with Ken Westling. 
During a UNICO Dinner held in Wilkes Barre, Reed met Oakland Raiders legend Kenny Stabler. Stabler died Thursday at the age of 69. He was known for his competitive nature on the field, being the first left handed QB of consequence in the NFL and had the nickname, "The Snake". Stabler had been battling cancer for a while.
Below is Reed with Stabler.
