Eric Malnic, Times Reporter Dies

Just read on LA Observed that my former colleague at the Los Angeles Times, Eric Malnick has died.   I’m so sorry to hear this.

An expert at covering aviation stories, Eric nearly always had a cheerful disposition, even in the face of increasingly difficult times at the paper.   He made me feel welcome at the Times,  even though I was a tv reporter who had been embedded  by the Tribune Company.   I will be forever grateful for his friendship.

Mr. Malnick was with the Times for 47 years.  He died at his home in Altadena on Tuesday night following a lengthy illness.

Journalism has lost another good one.  My sincere condolences to his family.

Eric was 73.
