Roger was an American patriot, an extraordinary leader both as a political strategist and as a pioneer in modern cable communications.
But most of all he was a devoted husband and a dedicated father.
I first got to know Roger in the 1970s. He was without peer and was the best media consultant in the business. Every major campaign in the Republican Party wanted Roger to do the media for their campaigns.
He won some of the toughest campaigns of that era, and trained a generation of strategists that followed him into the business.
