HOUSTON (AP) - Revered broadcaster Ron Stone -- who spent more than 30 years in television news in Houston -- died of cancer
Tuesday.
He was 72.
His death was reported on the Web site of Houston television
station KPRC, where he anchored the news for 20 years until his
retirement in 1992. He worked at KHOU in Houston for 10 years
before moving to KPRC, an NBC affiliate.
Stone was known for his storytelling and his folksy, plainspoken
delivery. The Houston Chronicle once declared Stone to be -- quote
-- "the most popular and revered news anchor the city has ever
known."
