McKay is best known for hosting "ABC's Wide World of Sports" and 12 Olympic Games. Over the course of his career, he won numerous awards for journalism, including the George Polk Memorial Award and two Emmys. McKay is perhaps most remembered for his coverage of the hostage crisis at the 1972 Munich Olympics when 11 Israeli athletes were killed by terrorists. His work that day earned him Emmys for both news and sports coverage.
