Roger Emrich
Roger Emrich, a member of the Texas Radio Hall of Fame and a long-time sportscaster and reporter for the Texas State Network died Saturday night.

He was 62, according to the KRLD 1080 AM , Dallas website.

Emrich's son Ted, a network sportscaster in his own right, announced the death this morning on a Facebook post.

Roger did not recover after a heart attack last Wednesday, and had been battling health problems for several years.

Emrich has been heard for decades on KRLD and Texas State Network, first as the Austin Bureau Chief, and then as a sportscaster.

For the last few years, he hosted a high school football show every week with Chris Somer.

Emrich was also the Voice of AT&T Stadium, and known as "The Raj Majal" to friends, colleagues, and fans alike.

Roger was most passionate about three things: Sports, Music, and Life.
