    Bob Banfield former ABC7 Newsman has passed away

    Former Eyewitness News Inland Empire Bureau Chief Bob Banfield passed away Thursday morning at the age of 82. The beloved newsman had been battling cancer for some time. Bob was well known and loved here in the Inland Empire area of Southern California!

    Our thoughts and prayers are with Bob's loved ones today as we remember him on his first day as an ABC7 reporter on May 26, 1967. Bob came to Los Angeles during a turbulent time, covering the assassination of Bobby Kennedy, the Manson murders, and the South L.A. shootout. ~RIP Bob~

    Hi kato!

    I don't think so. Ashleigh Banfield hails from Canada.
