Vic Ziegel (Sportswriting. Born, New York, NY, Aug. 16, 1937; died, The Bronx, NY, July 23, 2010.) As a versatile, tough, and incisive writer with an impish sense of humor, Victor Ziegel came out of City College to forge a considerable reputation at the New York Post for 19 years (1958-77). Ziegel then became the columnist-sports editor at New York magazine, expanding his writing horizons to Inside Sports and Rolling Stone (1978-83). He became the sports editor of the Daily News (1985-90), where he created a top staff, but returned to writing as a featured columnist at the paper. Ziegel was equally at home with boxing, basketball, baseball, and a myriad of other subjects, often focusing on the human dimension outside of the events in which participants compete.
