Former UNC Play-by-Play Voice Passes Away


Bill Currie, who did the radio play-by-play for North Carolina football and basketball in the 1960s, passed away on Monday evening.

Bill Currie, nicknamed the "Mouth of the South" during his days as a popular radio and television personality in North Carolina, died "a Tar Heel fan to the core," his daughter said Tuesday.

"He never lost that famous spirit of his, and he certainly never lost that deep love for Carolina football and basketball," Granger said.
