UNM to host public memorial for Roberts at Pit on Sept. 25

There will be a free public viewing for Mike Roberts inside the Pit on Sept. 25 from 4 to 8 p.m. Specific details of the event will be finalized early next week when the University of New Mexico, French Funerals and the Roberts family meet, according to Mike Haggerty, UNM assistant athletic director for events.

Roberts, known as the “Voice of the Lobos” after spending more than four decades passionately describing Lobos football and basketball, as well as several other area sporting events, died this week at age 83 after a battle with cancer.
