Long-time UNC announcer Woody Durham dies at 76

Woody Durham, the voice of North Carolina for 40 years, passed away early Wednesday morning, according to his family.

A 13-time winner of the NCMA’s North Carolina Sportscaster of the Year award, Durham called over 2,000 games for the Tar Heels.

Durham, a 1963 graduate of UNC, retired from play-by-play duties in 2011; Jones Angell took over then, and has since held the job.

In 2016, Woody Durham was diagnosed with primary progressive aphasia —  a brain disorder that affects speech.

North Carolina basketball plays later today in the ACC Tournament against Syracuse.
