Legendary sportscaster Pat Summerall, 82, died Tuesday in his hospital room at Zale Lipshy Hospital in Dallas, Tex., according to the Dallas Morning News.

He was recovering from surgery to repair a broken hip, a family friend confirmed.

Known for his work as an analyst on a record 16 Super Bowls, Summerall had a to-the-point style that made him a household name while working for CBS from 1961-93. After CBS he joined the staff at Fox until he retired in 2002.

During 21 of his years Summerall worked alongside analyst John Madden, and they grew into one of America’s most popular sportscasting duos. Their last Super Bowl together was in 2002 when the New England Patriots beat the St. Louis Rams 20-17.

Summerall also called NBA games for CBS and became the network’s lead voice on golf and tennis.

Summerall leaves behind wife, Cheri, and three children with his first wife, Kathy.
