Longtime television sports broadcaster Jack Whitaker has died at 95.

Whitaker spent 22 years with CBS Sports, which announced that he died of natural causes in his sleep.

His Hall of Fame broadcasting career ranged from the first Super Bowl to Secretariat's Triple Crown to short essays from major sporting events.

Whitaker had been the only living play-by-play announcer from the first 21 Super Bowls.

Whitaker spent four decades in front of the camera, also covering the Summer and Winter Olympics in 1984 and 1988.  

CBS Sports, where Whitaker got his start in the 1950s, said there will never be another broadcaster like him.
