RIP: Dave McElhatton, San Francisco news anchor

Dave McElhatton and LOUIE LOUIE

On Monday, we lost Dave McElhatton, a news anchorman for KPIX Channel 5, the San Francisco CBS affiliate. I never met the man, but I’d heard a lot of stories about about a decent human being he was. Dave retired from broadcasting in 2000 after nearly 50 years on the airwaves at KCBS radio and KPIX television.

I’ll say one thing about the guy: He knew about the important stories. Here’s a still image from a VHS tape of the news coverage of the infamous KFJC LOUIE LOUIE Marathon of 1983.

We’re going to miss you, Dave.
