"Hugh Downs has died at 99. The broadcaster was one of the most durable and versatile personalities on TV.

A mainstay of American TV-watching rituals for generations, Hugh Downs for years held the world record for most time on air — more than 10,000 hours — before Regis Philbin surpassed him in 2004. Viewers knew him from "The Tonight Show," "Today," and "20/20," which he co-hosted with Barbara Walters."

]I'm surprised he was still alive. He predates me significantly, but I knew about him primarily by reputation. Best remembered by me for appearing on an episode of "Car 54."
