Dallas Cowboys voice Murphy Martin dead at 82

DALLAS (AP) - North Texas broadcaster Murphy Martin, who was an anchor at WFAA-TV in the 1960s and 70s, died late Thursday after a lengthy illness.

Martin died just one hour shy of his 83rd birthday, WFAA-TV reported Friday on its Web site.

Football fans may remember Martin as the public address announcer for the Dallas Cowboys at Texas Stadium in the 1980s.

He worked at WFAA in the early 1960s and went on to be an anchor and reporter at ABC News in New York. Martin returned to WFAA again in the early 70s.

He was inducted into the Texas Radio Hall of Fame in 2006.
