It was my honor and pleasure to be associated with George W. Bagel (Bryant) during the Nineteen-Seventies, when we were staff members of public radio station, WGUC, which was then both owned and operated by the University of Cincinnati. When George was promoted to General Manager of the station, I took over his old position as Program Director, and we worked very closely together.<br /> <br />As Dan Pinger and Chris Heather have noted elsewhere on this page, George Bryant was a true gentleman in the good, old-fashioned sense of the term. He was amiable, easy-going and funny; you couldn't have asked for a more congenial working relationship between yourself and your supervisor; the dynamic at WGUC was more like working alongside a friend, as opposed to the usual hierarchical set-up of boss/administrator and employee/underling.<br /><br />George had a cute expression that I clearly recall. Around 1:30 PM on workday afternoons, he'd check around with the radio station staff to make sure that everybody had been &quot;fed and watered.&quot;<br /><br />A seasoned and thorough broadcasting professional, George Bryant had a beautiful, deep, resonant announcing voice; in fact, he claimed that he had been turned down for jobs at some AM radio stations because they said that his voice was so low, it would just come out as an unintelligible rumble over the restricted frequency-range and bad fidelity of an AM radio signal. <br /> <br />The obituary notices about George's passing don't mention that George also had a side career, in addition to his work in radio and TV. He and his wife, Irene, were both terrific ballroom dancers, and they used to teach at one of the Fred Astaire Dance Studios in Cincinnati. I'm sure that the two of them together were dashing, lithe and well-coordinated figures on the dance floor.<br /> <br />I'm glad to know that George Bryant lived such a long and fulfilling life, and that he continued to do what he loved to do, well into his later years. As I said at the beginning of this note, it was an absolute honor and pleasure to know and work with him. He taught me a lot about what it meant to be a true professional in the field of broadcasting, and about devoting one's efforts to providing the best possible radio or television service for the audience/listeners/viewers. I am sorry to learn of his passing, and I offer my sincere condolences to the members of George's family and circle of friends whom he loved with that big, open, good-humored heart of his, and who loved him in return. Bless you and Godspeed, George Bryant!

I worked with George at UC.
There is no finer gentleman.

I was Georges" Chief Engineer at WGUC in the 70's. He was a great guy and I'm sure all will miss him. Great broadcaster.
