Tedd Webb, a local radio legend, passed away yesterday at the age of 72.
To describe Tedd as just a talk radio host would be an injustice, though. He was also a fixture in wrestling (doing commentary for the short lived NAWA out of Raleigh in the early 90’s) along with many appearances on TV over the years here in the Tampa area.
A younger version of myself once called his WFLA radio show “Sports Huddle” when ex-Chiefs head coach Hank Stram was on. Steam was famous for being a chatterbox during Super Bowl IV, with NFL Films micing him up for that big game.
When I first got started building websites on AOL’s version of WordPress, Tedd’s site linked to my homemade concoction.
Tedd saw our area rise from what it was to the past to the eleventh biggest market in the country. It must have been quite the ride.
