Longtime UNC Announcer Woody Durham Dies at 76

WOODY DURHAM, the longtime voice of UNIVERSITY OF NORTH CAROLINA football and men's basketball, passed away this morning in CHAPEL HILL, NC at 76 after a battle with Primary Progressive Aphasia.

"Our family is grateful for the incredible support my dad and our family received throughout his illness", said Durham's son, Wes, in an official statement. "In those terms, I'll never be able to get that back". He described his former partner as the ultimate in preparation, a guy who took his craft as seriously as anyone who has ever called a game. He worked more than 1,800 games with a voice that became inextricably tied to some of the school's most unforgettable victories.

Every pregame video montage will echo his voice throughout the Smith Center, as he calls the final seconds of the 1982, 1993, 2005 and 2009 national championships.

Durham spent 40 years calling basketball and football games for UNC.

"One, it's what he wanted me to do, to the point he told my mom that", Wes Durham said. I am profoundly sad at the passing of a colleague whose work set the standard for all the rest of us who worked with him. And I fell in love with the event because of his love for it and so this seemed right.

The North Carolina athletic program is mourning the loss of legendary announcer Woody Durham.

"Hopefully, I'll do a good job", Wes Durham said. It's pretty tough. We didn't make shots at all.

"And Woody had some nice things to say about me, was very friendly and helpful and approachable, all those types of things, as I'm sure he was to other broadcasters that were coming behind him".
