Jim Huber

I’ve been a big fan of Emmy Award winner Jim Huber for years. I really loved his work in the golf world.  Every April I greatly looked forward to hearing Jim’s “Masters Today” pieces during the Masters.  I’m saddened to have to post the news of Jim’s passing.

I met Mr. Huber last January (2011) at the PGA Merchandise Show.  He was walking down the center isle opposite the direction I was walking.  I stopped him and introduced myself, mentioning that I was a golf blogger.  I told him how much I enjoyed his Masters pieces.  He was thankful and appreciative.  I half jokingly offered my services as his assistant at Augusta.  He smiled and patted me on the back, letting me know that I hadn’t been the first to offer such a thing.

Rest in peace Jim.  You’ll be missed.

The Turner Broadcasting family suffered a great loss and we are saddened by the passing of our colleague and friend, Jim Huber. A terrific Emmy Award winning journalist and essayist, Jim made so many contributions during his more than 27 years with our company. He was a gentleman and wonderful individual and will be deeply missed. We send our condolences to his wife, Carol, and son, Matt.
