7835 Myroncope           Discovered 1993 June 16 by T. B. Spahr at the Catalina Station.
Sports journalist Myron Cope (1929-2008) was broadcaster for the Pittsburgh Steelers American football team, creator of "The Terrible Towel" and organizer of charities addressing autism. He was the first professional-football announcer elected to the National Radio Hall of Fame. The name was suggested by E. E. Mamajek.
