Longtime Dallas-Fort Worth radio host Russ Martin was found dead inside of his Frisco home a little after midnight Saturday, the Frisco police department announced.

Officers responded to an unresponsive person call in the 6300 block of Douglas Avenue in Frisco around 12:30 a.m., the police department said in a news release. A friend of Martin’s had to come to check on him, police said, and found him unresponsive.

Martin was the host of The Russ Martin Show on 97.1 The Eagle. News of his death was shared over the station on Saturday.

A Facebook post from The Russ Martin Show asked people to tune it at 1 p.m. Saturday, saying, “It’s important.” The comments section is filled with hundreds of tribute to the radio host, many from people saying they’ve been listening to him since they were kids.

Police are asking anyone with information on the death to call the department at 972-292-6010 or send an anonymous tip by texting FRISCOPD and the tip to 847411 (tip411). People can also submit tips by downloading the Frisco PD app on iOS and Android devices, police said.
