Strange. I was just wondering where he had went last week. I don't think he had been on air for quite some time.

RIP Russ.

We worked together when he made the first Spittleville short film. We were asked to burn a house down, after we did our training on it with several other Departments, Russ and his crew filmed for two days. Had a blast working with him.

I missed his show, was wondering what happened that they replaced them. I really like them. Sounded like he has his battles though. Always loved what he did with the Russ Martin Listener Foundation

You worked for him, crazy. Not sure when he filled the spot when they dropped Howard Stern in Dallas, but I can remember listening to him fall of '99 all the way until the show went downhill and he was constantly not showing up. It was obvious he had some health issues but they never would go into detail. I've tried listening to the remaining group running the show and it wasn't the same but they showed intitial promise but lately that show has just not been very good, RIP Russ.

I may be wrong, but I think he had some health issues recently?

Sucks, listened to him for 10 years or more. He has had some recent issues with his blood clot in the leg and brain surgery. He was great contributor to fire and police I hope his legacy continues

After his home invasion incident he had never been the same. Canít say I blame him. I assume Things like that will change who you are. My first thought was suicide but I donít any actual details of the situation.

Gotta Respect the man for what heíd do for the families of local fallen in the line of duty police officers. $10k a family is what heíd raise to donate. I remember him signing off of his show the day or day after the five officers died in Dallas
Sad deal

I did some work on his house in Southlake when he was at 105.3. Really nice guy, I got to set in the bat mobile, and a charger General Lee clone he had.

The guys on his show came on air 1pm saturday to break the news and said that wasn't the case, whatever it was that got him they said he refused to fight it even though friends begged him to, I took it as alcoholism or opioids.
