The late Morris “Mo” Siegel is honored as a legendary sportswriter and columnist. His sense of humor and quick wit also made him a popular speaker and master of ceremonies. In a remarkable career that spanned nearly 6 decades, he was a reporter for four Washington newspapers, a magazine feature writer, and a radio and TV commentator. He was more than a seasoned journalist, sports aficionado and man about town-he was an institution. Described as the consummate newspaper man, Mo was always looking for a story when he wasn’t telling one. He was revered and loved by all, and, according to those who knew him, nobody could tell a story better.
