Brent Boller, a longtime news anchor at San Antonio's Texas Public Radio, died Monday after a struggle with cancer.

The 63-year-old Boller's voice carried an instantly recognizable radio resonance. Before joining TPR, he anchored AM talk station KTSA's morning drive time through much of the 2000s. A former Air Force captain, he also did a stint as a Joint Base San Antonio media spokesman.

"He was truly one of the Good Guys," TPR President and CEO Joyce Slocum wrote on Boller's Facebook page. "Always upbeat and concerned about others. We'll miss that dazzling smile. On the professional side, his voice and delivery were amazing."

Boller, a California native, studied at Texas State University and later earned a graduate degree at the University of Oklahoma, according to a post on TPR's website.

He's survived by his wife Jean and daughter McKenna.
