Longtime Albuquerque Isotopes and UNM Lobos public address announcer Stu Walker died Monday afternoon at age 61 after a battle with cancer. Walker worked with the Isotopes since 2003 and with the Lobos’ football and basketball teams for the last 20 years. Walker first started calling Lobo basketball games in 1995. He also called baseball and men’s soccer games for UNM, and called high school championships for NMAA. Walker was a former Albuquerque DJ and former radio newsman. “We are deeply saddened by Stu Walker’s passing,” said Vice President for Athletics Paul Krebs. “Stu was a tireless worker and loved not just the Lobos but all of Albuquerque. His voice was instantly recognized by our fans, and he will be sorely missed.”
