Jess Marlow, a former Los Angeles news anchor whose no-nonsense delivery reflected a passion for facts over fluff, died Sunday in a Denver-area nursing home. He was 84.
His death from complications of Alzheimer’s disease was confirmed by his nephew Bill Marlow.
Working at KCBS-TV and KNBC-TV for 31 years and then coming out of retirement to co-host a public affairs show on KCET-TV, Marlow was among Southern California’s most respected newscasters.
