RIP: "Hotline" Ric Carter

Dr. Mike Lano contacted the CAC and informed us CAC member, Ric Carter age 44 was killed yesterday when he stopped his car on the way to Mesquite to help out after another car had rolled over from a earlier accident. While he was helping, a hit & run driver hit Ric.

"Hotline" Ric Carter started a radio show on a 50,000 watt station in Vegas in 1988. Mike Lano was one of his weekly cohosts doing the Japan and Mexican wrestling news, along with Potshot Bill Kunkel and Mike Tenay(his first foray into broadcasting). Ric of course was the star and main host. He'd reffed at most of Moolah's LIWA conventions and resided in Las Vegas.

The Cauliflower Alley Club sends its thoughts & condolences to the Carter family during these sad times.
