Broadcast Legend Dick Enberg Dead at 82

Renowned sports broadcaster Dick Enberg has died at the age of 82, his family confirmed late Thursday. Enberg failed to get on a flight to Boston on Thursday, and he was later found dead, with his bags packed, at his home in the San Diego neighborhood of La Jolla, ESPN reports. Enberg’s family said they believe he suffered a heart attack, though the official cause of death has yet to be confirmed. Enberg was a legend in sports broadcasting, having covered 28 Wimbledons, 10 Super Bowls, and eight NCAA men’s basketball title games. Over his decades-long career, Enberg, known for his cry of “Oh my!” at key moments, won the National Baseball Hall of Fame’s Ford C. Frick Award, and the Pro Football Hall of Fame’s Rozelle Award, and he was the only sports broadcaster to win an Emmy Award in three categories: broadcasting, writing, and producing. He died just shy of his 83rd birthday, which would have been on Jan. 9.
