How Kangas helped “Nightly Business Report” viewers
Howard Cohen of The Miami Herald writes about how “Nightly Business Report” anchor Paul Kangas, who died Tuesday at the age of 79, helped his viewers.
Cohen writes, “As news of Kangas’ declining health spread, Linda O’Bryon, founding ‘Nightly Business Report’ executive editor and the original co-anchor who shared that duty with Kangas for years, began to reflect on their professional moments together. She remembered a particular caller, a woman in her mid-90s, who Kangas went out of his way to help.
“Once a week, O’Bryon said, this woman would call into WPBT’s North Miami studio and ask to speak with Kangas. She couldn’t see too well and she didn’t trust anyone to tell her what her stocks were doing. So every week, Kangas would take her call after filming his segment and go over her portfolio of stocks with her.
