UNDATED (AP) -- Former news anchor John Hambrick -- whose 30-year career took him from Texas to Ohio to California to New York to Florida -- has died of cancer. He was 73.
Hambrick's son Jack confirmed that he died Tuesday under hospice care at Scott and White Hospital in Bell County, Texas. He was diagnosed with lung cancer in 2012, and it metastasized to his brain.
Hambrick's TV news career ran from the early 1960s to the 1990s. He anchored newscasts on WNBC in New York, KABC in Los Angeles, KRON in San Francisco, WTVJ and WCIX in Miami, KHOU in Houston, WEWS in Cleveland, WCPO in Cincinnati and KBMT in Beaumont, Texas.
Hambrick received many professional awards over the years, including an Emmy in 1984 for co-anchoring the best newscast in New York.
