On a radio show May 8, 2022, Ray Didinger made an emotional announcement.
At age 75, he was about to enter retirement and bring to a halt his 53-year career as a sports writer, author, playwright and radio-TV commentator/personality.
  Ray's primary focus was on the Philadelphia Eagles, but he was capable of covering anything and everything . . . and did so.
Plus, he was respected and loved by ALL.

  Ray was asked to provide his three favorite stories during his writing career for the Daily News . . .
