According to Lindsey Guentzel, Rowe's wife informed WCCO of his death and said he had been battling Lou Gehrig's Disease.

Rowe's first season with the Vikings featured a three-man booth, including former Viking Dave Huffman and the one and only, Jesse Ventura, according to a 1993 Post-Bulletin story.

Rowe was replaced by Paul Allen in 2001 by current play-by-play voice, Paul Allen.

In 2003, Rowe started a stint as the play-by-play guy for the San Diego Chargers.
