He retired from WNBC in 1991.

Teague was born in Milwaukee and was a star football player at the University of Wisconsin. According to the Times, he passed up offers from four professional football teams to become a reporter for the Journal.

Teague was the author of several other books, including “Letters to a Black Boy,” addressed to his then-1-year-old son. He wrote three works of children’s fiction with titles such as “Agent K-Thirteen the Super-Spy.”

WNBC anchor Chuck Scarborough said Teague was “driven to excel and tireless in his pursuit of the truth.”

“He was also a valuable mentor to those of us who followed in his footsteps,” Scarborough said. “Bob’s achievements and integrity stand as an example for us all.”

WNBC praised Teague in a statement as “a broadcast pioneer with a passion for news and for serving his New York viewers.”
