Zach Klein Atlanta sportscaster


A sportscaster in Atlanta is grabbing headlines for the way he paid tribute to Robin Williams.

Zach Klein name-checked 22 of Williams' many films in his sports roundup just hours after the actor's death was reported Monday.

"For those of you who suffer from Insomnia, Saturday’s Braves game was perfect for you," Klein, who works for WSB-TV, said as he launched into his report.

He also described a player with "Happy Feet" and remarked on how another flexed his muscles like "Popeye."

"Honestly, I just wanted to do something to show my appreciation for the greatness that was Robin Williams," Klein told Agence France-Press via email Tuesday. "It was a hard day for so many and I thought a subtle tribute to a man many loved and admired was the least I could do."
