Belgian Radio Honors Wrong Bob in Death Tribute

BRUSSELS — Bob Hope will have some new material for his wisecracks--a tribute broadcast on a Belgian radio news program today to mark his death.

A journalist at the French-language radio station RTBF said the station had confused the 84-year-old comedian with choreographer and film director Bob Fosse, who died Wednesday night.

"It's a bit embarrassing. We've broadcast corrections and there isn't much else we can do," he said.
