Keith Jackson, the sportscaster whose rich voice and distinctive phrasing endeared him to generations of college football fans, has died, ESPN said in a news release Saturday. He was 89.

The play-by-play man narrated a range of sports for ABC for more than 40 years, starting in 1966. But college football was his forte, stamping the game with enduring expressions and nicknames.
