Ralph Emery, famed country music radio and TV broadcaster, dies at 88
Emery was inducted into the Country Music Disc Jockey Hall of Fame in 1989 and the Country Music Hall of Fame in 2007.
“Ralph Emery was often better known than the stars he introduced to a growing audience over the years as country music’s foremost ambassador,” said Sarah Trahern, CEO of the Country Music Association, in a press release.
“Our format has had no better voice over the years than Ralph, who has treated country music and its stars – many of whom have become his friends – with the kind of dignity and respect they have deserved for decades. As a Country Music Hall of Famer, he will be remembered among so many artists he has supported throughout his career.”
“Your legacy will live forever, Ralph. Thank you for all you have done.”
