Longtime Dolphins Announcer Jim Mandich Passes Away At Age 62 Due To Cancer
Published April 27, 2011
GREAT REPRESENTATIVE FOR TEAM: In West Palm Beach, Hal Habib writes, "When it comes to unabashed ambassadors of the Miami Dolphins, there was never anyone better than Jim Mandich." Habib: "A homer, a cheerleader -- Mandich was all that, but his stature as the most popular broadcaster in team history never would have been if not for blunt candor when the action turned sour" (PALM BEACH POST, 4/27). NATIONAL FOOTBALL POST's Aaron Wilson writes Mandich's "famous 'All Right, Miami!' exclamation after exciting Dolphin plays became his hallmark catch phrase." Wilson: "His passion for the team was evident in every broadcast he did, and his unique on-air presence and personality captivated Dolphin fans everywhere" (NATIONALFOOTBALLPOST.com, 4/27).
