Yankees announcer popped for kiddie porn Robert Gamere'

69-year-old Robert Gamere, who pleaded not guilty to the charges, “broadcast professional baseball, college sports, and horse races in a career that spanned three decades. … The pornographic images seized by federal agents, she added, were “extremely, extremely disturbing and involved very young children.”

Gamere was released on bond, but must “stay in his apartment and wear an electronic-monitoring bracelet. He is not allowed to even answer the door to trick-or-treaters on Halloween.

Gamere is best-known for his broadcast work in Boston, but he also broadcast Yankees games.

Gamere held numerous other broadcasting jobs, including doing the play-by-play for Harvard football. He had made his television play-by-play debut in 1970 for the New York Yankees on WPIX but was let go after one season and replaced by Bill White.

He also was a Boston TV sports anchor, but was fired after being slapped with a sex harrassment suit by a Boston man.

God-awful charges for someone who is apparently quite ill. As if the Yankees haven’t had enough bad news lately.
