I actually remember Larry from KTLA, but as I viewed it from rebroadcasts in Guam in the late 70's, early 80's. (Guam's cable, at the time, rebroadcast various LA television stations, including KTLA. Most shows were 2 weeks behind!)

RIP Larry.

Very sad to hear Mr. McCormick passed away. Just heard - don't watch 5 too much anymore, but nevertheless - I remember him to be such a gentleman and such a professional. When I did watch 5, he was always a pleasure to listen to. I am 63 and watched him for so many years (earlier years) - I pray for his family - I know God is taking care of him.
