Veteran Newscaster Dies

Bos Johnson, a long-time journalist and broadcaster, died in Charleston. He spent 53 years in communications, 24 of them at WSAZ-TV in Charleston-Huntington.

Bos has been compared to having the same impact as Walter Cronkite in his market.  He was the anchor that took the community through the long night of November 14, 1970 when a plane crashed killing 75 Marshall University football players, coaches and fans.

Johnson later became a professor of broadcast journalism at the W.Page Pitt School of Journalism at Marshall University.
