Hal Fishman dead at 75


Hal Fishman, who is believed to have been the longest-serving anchor in television history, has died at age 75. KTLA-TV (Ch. 5, CW) Los Angeles revealed just last week that Fishman had been diagnosed with colon cancer and that it had spread to his liver. Fishman began his 47 year on-air run in LA at KCOP in 1960 and shifted between stations, serving continuously as anchor of the 10 pm newscast at KTLA since 1975.
