Murray State journalism icon McGaughey dies at 76

There are a lot of words that can be used to describe one Dr. Bob McGaughey, longtime Murray State University professor and department chairman. He was more than a professor and chairman. Some people say he was one of Murray State’s strongest ambassadors, no matter the cause. He had a style that was all his own, including not using his real name at times when calling former students, both to ask them to contribute to their alma mater financially, or to just to see how they were doing. “Yes, this is Royce Williams,” he would say. McGaughey, known to all as “Doc,” was 76. He died after a short illness at the University of Louisville Medical Center.
