Former WCW announcer Lee Marshall passes away

KFBK News Radio reported yesterday that former WCW announcer Lee Marshall has passed away with no cause of death announced.

Marshall was the co-host of WCW Thunder and also had interview duties on the WCW Saturday Night program as well. He often appeared on Nitro doing his Road Reports although he was never a big part of WCW’s flagship show.

Marshall worked once for WWE, handling the ring announcing at WrestleMania 2 when the show was being broadcast from Los Angeles. WrestleMania 2 aired from three different locations and needed three different crews.

“Sorry to hear about the passing of Lee Marshall. Lee was there when I got my start (and still called me Choir Boy when we spoke last). Lee was a good man, a pro’s pro, and a GGGRREEAATT! announcer. Tony the Tiger will never sound as good. RIP my friend,” former WCW President Eric Bischoff wrote on his Twitter.

WWE.COM also acknowledged Marshall’s passing with a short article on the website.

Perhaps Marshall is best known for voicing Tony The Tiger in the United States, Kellogg’s Frosted Flakes breakfast cereal mascot, a position he held from 2005 until his death.
