Huell Howser, California TV Legend, Passes Away :-(
Huell Howser--a California broadcasting legend for his various shows that have appeared on public broadcasting over the past couple of decades--has passed away, according to sources who spoke to the Weekly on condition of anonymity.
The news will come as a shock to his legions of fans, all who were puzzled when Howser announced his retirement late last year, as Howser still seemed to have the enthusiasm and energy that made him so easy to parody--and so beloved to millions of Californians.
In the past couple of years, Howser has forged a connection with Chapman University, donating all his papers and videos of his shows and even a house he owned out in the desert.
Details of his passing are currently unknown. More--much more--as more information arises...in the meanwhile, here's my remembrance of Howser.
