Former Mizzou broadcaster Skip Caray dies

Skip Caray, best known as the voice of the Atlanta Braves for 33 years, died Sunday. He was 68.

The reason this is relevant on a Mizzou blog is that Caray, a graduate of the Missouri School of Journalism, was a color commentator with his father Harry Caray for Missouri football.

Quoth the ever mysterious ESPN News Services (and it's not AP, because I am looking at a direct AP feed right now):

Caray began his broadcasting career at KMOX-Radio in St. Louis as host of a 15-minute high school sports show and as a sportscaster for high school basketball games. He later joined his father as a color commentator for University of Missouri football.

RIP, Skip.
