A great voice has been silenced and will be missed greatly.

Harold Norbert “Harry” Kalas, 73, died today doing what he loved. The famed announcer was taken to the hospital from the Philadelphia Philly’s announcer’s booth where he was pronounced dead.

I’ve been a fan of Mr. Kalas for as long as I can remember. I have always had a secret desire to be a voice talent and Mr. Kalas was one of the best. His narration of NFL films was what made those vignettes so awesome and I personally believe he was responsible for the ‘bigger than life’ persona that those films portrayed.

I offer my sincerest condolences to the Kalas family.
