'Voice of AT&T Stadium,' Roger Emrich, dead at 62

   KRLD/1080 AM radio announcer, and the voice of the Dallas Cowboys at AT&T Stadium since 2011, Roger Emrich, has died. Emrich was a 2015 Texas Radio Hall of Fame inductee.

Emrich, 62, had a heart attack last week. His son Ted Emrich announced the news Sunday morning on Twitter.

“The man with the voice of God is now in heaven,” he posted. “Your relentless spirit, positive attitude, and legacy will live forever. Love you always, Dad.”

Texas Rangers radio voice Eric Nadel called Emrich a “kind, thoughtful man.” Cowboys radio voice Brad Sham called it heartbreaking. “He brightened every room he entered. That’s a permanent hole in the universe,” Sham said.

Dallas Mavericks television voice Mark Followill had known Emrich for more than 25 years, “What a genuinely nice and warm man who was so passionate about sports, his family, radio and New Orleans among many other things,” Followill said.

Morning radio host R.J. Choppy, with radio station 105.3 FM, said of  Emrich, "He had this massive voice, and his recall of stories was amazing."
