2. WOLF CNN’s daily 1-2 p.m. news program anchored by Wolf Blitzer.

3. WOLF LAKE Lou Diamond Phillips starred in this short-lived 2001-02 supernatural drama that took place in a suburban Washington State town where many of its residents were werewolves.

4. WOLFMAN JACK Gravelly-voiced disc jockey whose TV work included announcing for and occasionally hosting the 1970s late-night music program “The Midnight Special.”
