MOBRIDGE, SD- A man whose voice is familiar to many radio listeners in north-central South Dakota has passed away.
Pat Morrison died Monday at the age of 92. Morrison was the sports director for the Dakota Radio Group’s KOLY AM and FM stations in Mobridge from 1956 until he retired in August of 2016. One of his many honors includes being inducted into the South Dakota Sports Hall of Fame in 2005. (http://www.sdshof.com/inductees/pat-morrison/)
