Stan Sandroni, who had begun his 26th season as the sideline reporter for the Ole Miss football broadcast team, has died.
A TeleSouth Communications report said Sandroni, 64, died of a heart attack. Oxford Citizen sports editor John Davis reported that Sandroni had been recovering from a medical procedure performed Tuesday when he was rushed to a local hospital and died late Wednesday.
Sandroni was also a sales representative for WQLJ-FM 93.7 in Oxford and co-host of Rebel Yell Hotline, a weekly radio show for Ole Miss football.
In a sports broadcast career that spanned more than 40 years Sandroni had also worked in television news and sports in Greenville and as the voice of Delta State athletics.
