The couple had been together since high school. They are survived by two children — daughter, Shelby is a sophomore at Auburn, and Joshua, is a rising 10th-grader.
A GoFundMe campaign intended to raise $100,000 for the Brambletts' children has been established.
Rod Bramblett graduated from Auburn in 1988 with a bachelor’s degree in political science. He began his Auburn broadcasting career in 1993 calling baseball games. He had been the play-by-play announcer for Auburn football and basketball games since 2003.
Bramblett was a three-time Alabama Sportscaster of the Year. Sports Illustrated named Bramblett the national broadcaster of the year in 2013 after his calls during wins over Alabama — "Kick Six" — and Georgia — "Miracle in Jordan-Hare."
