One of those people who's impact is hard to give enough credit. Most people know him from his work on air, but there was SO MUCH more, arguably much more important things that he was responsible for behind the scenes. There is a reason an award carries his name. RIP Ken, you'll be missed.
Very well said. Ken Squier was my all-time favorite. He just had such a grandiose voice and way of speaking that commanded your attention. Much like Keith Jackson or Pat Summerall did for a football broadcast, whenever Ken was on the mic, he made any race sound like a huge event. And like others have said, he did a lot of great things off the air and was well liked by everyone.
In my teens and into my 20's, I was extra excited to get a CBS race and Ken calling the race. Later on when we finally got cable, I could hear him on the TBS races. He had a way that no else has been able to duplicate.
