DAVID DICK 1930-2010

DAVID DICK 1930-2010

Our thoughts and prayers go out to the family of David Dick, who passed away this week at his home in his native Bourbon County Kentucky. He was 80.

He was a former CBS News correspondent and bureau chief. David worked at CBS from 1966 to 1985, winning an Emmy for his coverage of the assassination attempt on then-presidential candidate George Wallace. He also served as South American bureau chief from 1978-1979.

After his years at CBS, David went on to become Director of the University of Kentucky's School of Journalism. He and his wife Lalie own Plum Lick Publishing and together they have written over a dozen books on their beloved state of Kentucky and its people.

I had the pleasure of meeting David and doing a book signing with him and his lovely wife Lalie last year at Historic Penn Store. It was such an honor! He will be sadly missed.
