first_imgFILE – In this April 19, 2012 file photo, broadcast pioneer Lew Klein, who helped to create “American Bandstand”, speaks during an interview in Jenkintown, Pa. Klein taught and mentored at Temple University in Philadelphia for more than six decades, lending his name to its communication school. The school said he died Wednesday, June 12, 2019. He was 91. (AP Photo/Matt Rourke, File)PHILADELPHIA | Lew Klein, a broadcast pioneer who helped create “American Bandstand” and launched the careers of Dick Clark and Bob Saget, has died. He was 91.Klein died Wednesday, according to Temple University, where Klein taught and mentored students for more than six decades.He began working at WFIL-TV, now WPVI-TV, where he directed “Romper Room” and co-created “Captain Noah and His Magical Ark,” two popular children’s programs in the 1960s that attracted a bigger local audience than “Sesame Street.”A native of Philadelphia, Klein served as executive producer of “American Bandstand,” the popular music performance and dance television show hosted by the late Clark. Klein is credited with launching Clark’s career and served on the board of Dick Clark Productions.Klein spent 15 years producing telecasts for the Philadelphia Phillies and also helped with the careers of players-turned-sportscasters including Richie Ashburn and Tim McCarver.Only a couple years after he graduated with an English degree from the University of Pennsylvania, Klein started teaching at Temple. He stayed for more than 65 years.In 2017, Temple renamed the College of Media and Communications in his honor. During a ceremony, which included remarks from comedian Saget, Klein said he was “so proud and very thankful” to be honored by the university.“Lew could see the gleam in a student’s eye who was inspired to do the work,” Saget told The Associated Press in a phone interview Thursday.Klein helped Saget get an internship on “The Mike Douglas Show,” a daytime talk show. Klein was also an early supporter of “Through Adam’s Eyes,” a film Saget made in the late 1970s at Temple about his nephew who received facial reconstructive surgery.“I can truly say he was a conduit for all of that,” Saget said.“People like him don’t come around often,” Saget said. “He was just an all-around good man. When I saw him, I kissed him. And I only did that with my dad, Don Rickles and Norman Lear.”Former NBC news anchor Tamron Hall, also a Temple graduate, called Klein “a legend and an inspiration.”“I lost someone who I admired dearly,” she tweeted alongside a photo of the two of them.Joe Conti, president of the Pennsylvania Association of Broadcasters, called Klein a “titan within the broadcast community.”“He was a compassionate leader, tireless advocate and mentor to generations of broadcast television and radio professionals,” he said in an emailed statement.Survivors include Klein’s wife, Janet; children Ellen and Stephen; granddaughter Anna and her husband, John; and great-grandchildren Oscar and Miriam.This story has been corrected to show that Tamron Hall is a former NBC anchor, not a current one.last_img read more

Fantasy Premier League tips: Eight players you need to ditch

first_img 8 The Christmas period is going to be busy for everyone, and in particular Fantasy Premier League managers.Not only will you be stuffing your faces, and feasting on football action, you’ll have to keep up to date with the latest news and altering your team.As such, we’ve taken an early look at the next few fixtures and come up with eight players who you should consider taking out of your squads.Click the right arrow above to see the players we believe you should take out of your Fantasy Premier League team… 4. Marko Arnautovic (Stoke City) – £7.2m – The Potters star is suspended for their match with Liverpool and then in the next game they face Chelsea. 8 5. Pablo Zabaleta (Manchester City) – £4.7m – The Argentine right-back suffered a slight knee ligament injury and will at least miss one match over the festive period and possibly two. 8 8 8 8. Danny Rose (Tottenham Hotspur) – £5.9m – He put in a game-winning, man of the match performance against Burnley on Sunday afternoon but looked to be struggling with a knock throughout before eventually being substituted. Tottenham rotated their full-backs this time last year and it could happen again. You have been warned. 1. N’Golo Kante (Chelsea) – £4.7m – Click the right arrow above for more players to remove from your Fantasy Premier League team… – The Blues’ midfield whirling dervish is suspended for one match after picking up five cautions, but also, he’s not getting many points. 3. Christian Fuchs (Leicester City) – £5.3m – Firstly, just like many others on this list, the Austrian is suspended for one game. But he’s also performing below-par and isn’t having a season like he did last year. 8 2. Diego Costa (Chelsea) – £10.9m – For at least one game, you should ditch the Spain international. He is suspended for the Boxing Day clash with Bournemouth and should be replaced with another striker, possibly Michy Batshuayi, for the match. 8 7. Charlie Austin (Southampton) – £6.6m – A surprising 3.9 per cent of you still have this Saint in your side even though he’s out for several months through injury. 8 6. Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain (Arsenal) – £5.8m – The winger was just beginning to work himself into a regular role with the Gunners but a slight hamstring problem could keep him out for a game or two.
