Beloved Newscaster Larry Himmel Passes Away

I guess I missed the news yesterday. I'm not the kind to get sentimental about celebrities dying, especially local celebrities, but there are some personalities that are just larger than life. Most people felt some sadness when Junior Seau died, and this year with Tony Gwynn, Loren Nancarrow, and now Larry Himmel all dying, San Diego is surely feeling the losses but can also be grateful for the talents and gifts left behind by these human beings who were all so devoted to their crafts and their community.
We are saddened to report our beloved colleague Larry Himmel, CBS News 8's legendary reporter, humorist and consummate broadcaster died Wednesday evening following his brave battle with cancer. Larry was 68 years old. -CBS8
