Get Well, Hal

’Hal’

Los Angeles’s most beloved news anchor, Hal Fishman, 75, has been hospitalized with a “serious infection” after a collapse at his home. Hal, a UCLA alum, through and through a Los Angeles icon, has anchored KTLA’s 10 pm newscast since 1975–the single longest tenure of a news anchor in TV history.

In case you are wondering, yes, his Wiki entry has already been updated to reflect last night’s unfortunate events.

All of here at Losanjealous wish you a speedy recovery, Hal.

SAD UPDATE, 8/7/07: Hal passed away at 3 a.m. Tuesday, August 7. [LAT obit]
