    (September 23, 1928-June 25, 1995)
    Anchor on WABC-TV News (1968-86)
    Regular commentator on WNBC-TV's 'Live at Five' (1987-89)
    He closed his news reports with 'Hoping your news is good news, I'm Roger Grimsby.'
    He portrayed a news reporter/TV anchor in his three acting gigs.
    He smoked, which lead to his lung cancer-related death in 1995.
    He was the original anchor of 'Eyewitness News' which is still used by many ABC affiliates.
    He broke the barrier of being the straight lace anchor into injecting personality and some humor where appropriate in the news.
    He served in the U.S. Army.
    His opening line of 'Good evening, I'm Roger Grimsby, here now the news' was the basis for Chevy Chase's line of 'Good evening, I'm Chevy Chase and you're not' during his SNL 'Weekend Update' bit.
    He didn't like to wear make-up while on TV.
    He reported news from South Africa, the Middle East, Japan, Germany, South Korea and various locations within the United States.
    He allowed himself to be roasted at the Friars Club.
