AUBURN, Alabama -- Carl Stephens, a former host of the Auburn Football Review and the voice of Jordan-Hare Stadium for 27 years, died at age 77 Wednesday in a Montgomery hospital.
Stephens will be forever linked to former Auburn football coach Shug Jordan, who, when in agreement during their Sunday replay show, would say, "You're so right, Carl!" It became a catch phrase for Auburn fans.
Stephens was the announcer at Jordan-Hare before retiring in 2005. He also served as the announcer for Auburn basketball and baseball games, as well as SEC basketball and baseball tournaments.
Stephens was the sports director at WSFA-TV in Montgomery from 1963-75. He returned to WSFA in 1978 as the program and promotions manager.
Stephens is survived by his wife, Mary, son Richard, and daughter Sandra.
