Hal Fishman

Los Angeles lost one of its sons on Tuesday. KTLA newscaster Hal Fishman was the city's fatherly news figure for almost fifty years. Originally a teacher, he brought his professorial skills to his newscasts and commentaries. He was an author of two books, an avid fan of aviation, and a guy who gave me comfort with his consistency every weekday night at 10pm. And that hair was a thing unto itself!
