Vince Lloyd

Broadcaster

Vince Lloyd, a longtime broadcaster for the Chicago Cubs who worked with Jack Brickhouse and Lou Boudreau, died July 3 of stomach cancer at his home in Green Valley, Ariz. He was 86.

The Cubs observed a moment of silence before the July 4 home game against the St. Louis Cardinals.

Lloyd’s career broadcasting Cubs games for WGN-TV and WGN Radio spanned 38 years. He teamed with the late Brickhouse in the early years of televised Cubs baseball. He later worked with Boudreau, a Hall of Famer, as the radio voices of the Cubs for 23 years.

Lloyd became the first sportscaster to interview a sitting President live at a baseball opener. He managed to buttonhole President Kennedy before Kennedy threw out the first pitch of the 1961 season in Washington.

Lloyd is survived by his wife, Myrtle, whom he married three years ago. His first wife, Miriam, died in 1999 after more than 50 years of marriage. He is also survived by a son.
