Former A’s announcer King a finalist for Frick Award

The late Bill King and his “Holy Toledo” catch phrase were involved in decades’ worth of radio sound bites when he was a broadcaster for the Warriors and Raiders. King also carved out a nice, 25-year career as the broadcaster for the A’s. This year, King is a finalist for the Ford C. Frick Award, given annually by the Baseball Hall of Fame for excellence in broadcasting. King was among three finalists — late Cincinnati Reds radio announcer Joe Nuxhall and ESPN’s Joe Morgan — who were selected through an online vote through the Hall’s Web site. Tom Cheek, Ken Coleman, Dizzy Dean, Tony Kubek, Graham McNamee, Dave Niehaus and Dave Van Horne are also on the ballot.
