The Bill Schonely Story
is a celebration of the life of one of the Pacific Northwest's most storied broadcasters, whose booming pipes and colorful lexicon have entertained listeners for nearly half a century. The voice of the Portland Trail Blazers for over twenty-four years, nicknamed "The Schonz" by his fans, Bill Schonely gets help telling his stories from those who have been close to him during his sportscasting years.
In his book on Schonely, author Kerry Eggers rekindles fond memories of the Blazers' early years, championship season, and present popularity. Eggers faithfully documents Bill Schonely's meetings with sports stars and Hollywood celebrities, and relates the lasting friendships that sprang from a life full of famous people and events.
