RIP John McCullough

John McCullough, a long time anchor at WTMJ-TV passed away today:

John McCullough, who anchored WTMJ-TV newscasts over three decades, died Wednesday evening at a hospital near his home in South Bend, Ind.

McCullough was 77.

From 1967 to 1988, McCullough was the premiere anchor in the Milwaukee market.

McCullough brought major national and world stories home to Milwaukee, reporting from political conventions, presidential inaugurations and a papal visit.

I remember watching McCullough as a young man, along with Melodie Wilson. That was when Journal Broadcasting actually reported the news and maintained a certain level of integrity.

Sigh. I miss those days.
