Dick Bingham

Dick served in the Naval Air Corps during World War II and, afterwards, went on to attend Marietta College in Ohio. From 1947 to 1951, he was a staff broadcaster for WTSP-AM 1380 and, as its sports director, covered the St. Petersburg Saints minor league baseball team games.

In 1951, the St. Pete native joined Al Helfer to broadcast Mutual’s “Game of the Day” for a couple years and was honored in 1952 by the mayor of St. Petersburg with “Dick Bingham Day” for never failing to mention the city in his national radio broadcasts. He went on to cover Pittsburgh Pirates games (1955- 1958) and eventually worked in Chicago for WCFL and WBBM.

Richard Colson “Dick” Bingham passed away in 2002 in Severna Park, Maryland at the age of 79.
