RIP Austin Hill

Our dear friend Austin Hill, longtime conservative radio talk show host and my fellow contributor at Townhall, passed away earlier this month. He had a talent for covering issues that no one else did, and covering them thoughtfully and analytically, not with hyperbole. Here is the press release from his family.

Austin Hill Press Release
It is with great shock and sorrow that we announce Austin Hill unexpectedly died on Friday night, November 13th. At this time, doctors suspect the cause of death was cardiac related.
As a follower of Jesus, Austin's faith permeated and influenced all aspects of his life. He was committed to speaking the truth and engaging people in thoughtful conversation. In addition to writing and public speaking, Austin had a national radio presence with dedicated listeners across the country. Most importantly, he was a loving husband, and as his son describes him, an avid father.
Details concerning a memorial service will be posted on Austin's Facebook page.
In lieu of flowers, it is requested that gifts be sent to a college fund for his son, Graham, a high school senior:

I recall the time when Austin and Tom Liddy had a talk show on 960 AM. One of the best shows on radio. We were sorry to see them leave the air, and sorrier to only catch Austin rarely on other venues. His contribution to truth in journalism will be sorely missed. Our sympathies and prayers go out to his family and friends.
