We report with sorrow that legendary WTIC-am sports announcer Arnold Dean has died. According to a close associate, “His friends and colleagues are heartbroken.”   “The Dean of Sports” will be missed by many. Arnold began his career at WTIC in 1965.

WTIC-am will pay tribute to Arnold with a special program Monday night, 6pm-8pm.
