Royal Marshall | Boortz radio show producer dies (http://www.ajc.com/news/atlanta/royal-marshall-boortz-radio-805217.html)

by Rhonda Cook

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution

Raymond Royal Marshall was a producer for the Neal Boortz radio talk show, but he was as much a radio personality as Mr. Boortz himself.

Mr. Marshall would occasionally rein in the sometimes caustic Mr. Boortz with the breezy observation, “Man, you ain’t right.” He freely offered informed opinions on the topic of the day even if they differed from the host’s.

“He had my back all the time,” said Mr. Boortz, whose radio show is broadcast weekdays on AM750 and now 95.5 FM WSB. “Though ... there are many times he should have been kicking me in the butt. The show goes on but, at this point, I don’t know how.”

Mr. Marshall, 43, died early Saturday, but the cause of death was unknown at press time. He told his wife he wasn’t feeling well and walked into a bathroom in their home and collapsed, Mr. Boortz said. He was rushed to Grady Memorial Hospital but could not be revived.

:eek: :(

So shocking and sad. He was way to young. Prayers for his family.

This is so sad. I think they just had a child a year or so ago.

This is a shock. Belinda Skelton already said that it's going to be hard the next time they do a show. She and Royal were hired together. I haven't heard the show in quite sometime but when I lived in NC, I listened every night(it was rebroadcast at 9pm). He will be missed.

Royal was a class act.

I listen to Boortz every day, the show won't be the same without him.

Oh, man! WAY too young. I always liked Royal. He always managed to turn "plain-spoken" into eloquence.

Damn, that's a shame. Prayers for his survivors. So tough to lose a father like that with the kids so young. :(
