History Center to honor Myron Cope

Steelers fans show their pride with their Terrible Towels.

Myron Cope never played a down for the Steelers, but he is one of the most beloved individuals who ever was affiliated with the team and the man who created the iconic Terrible Towel.

The Heinz History Center knows what Cope meant to Steelers Nation, and will celebrate the life and legacy of the late Steelers radio color commentator when they host, "Yoi, Remembering Myron Cope," on Sunday, Jan. 31, from 1:30-3:00 p.m.

Bill Hillgrove, who worked in the radio booth and at WTAE-TV with Cope for years, will serve as the emcee, sharing some of his favorite stories about Cope.

More information on the event, and details on how to purchase tickets, is available at the Heinz History Center.

Here are some photos of legendary Steelers broadcaster and creator of the Terrible Towel, Myron Cope.
