Irwin Elliot Shalek (May 7, 1915 – September 17, 1998), better known as Win Elliot, was an American television and radio sportscaster and game show host who was best known for his long tenures as a play-by-play broadcaster of NHL New York Rangers and NBA New York Knicks games and host of Sports Central USA on the CBS Radio Network.

Life and career

Born Irwin Elliot Shalek in Chelsea, Massachusetts and a graduate of the University of Michigan, Elliot did Rangers games through the 1950s and '60s, alternating with other announcers of the era, depending on what stations held rights and who sponsored the games.

Elliot broadcast boxing matches on the NBC radio network during the 1950s.

From 1947 to 1949, he was the emcee of Quick as a Flash,[1] a radio quiz program which featured drama segments with guest actors from radio detective shows.

On TV, he replaced Jay Jackson as host of the nighttime version of the popular quiz show Tic-Tac-Dough, for the last 13 weeks of the show's nighttime run, before that program was taken off the air in the fallout from the quiz show scandals that had erupted not long before.[2]

Elliot was also a guest host on other game shows, including Beat the Clock and Win with a Winner.

But Elliot became far better known as a sportscaster. In the mid 1960s, he was the announcer for the "Schaefer Circle of Sports" broadcasts of Rangers and Knicks games, track and field and other events related to Madison Square Garden. Those broadcasts aired on WPIX TV and later on WOR TV. He also called the 1966 Stanley Cup Finals (the first televised by an American network) for NBC.[3]

Elliot also broadcast horse racing events in the 1960s and conducted one of the early call-in sports radio talk shows on WCBS-AM in New York.

He then started anchoring Sports Central USA for CBS Radio, which he continued to do into the early 1980s. He also took part in several of the network's World Series broadcasts in the 1970s and '80s.[4]

He was the brother of movie and TV actor Biff Elliot.

Elliot died at Norwalk Hospital in Connecticut on September 17, 1998 at the age of 83.[5]
