An old friend has died after a long and distinguished journalism career. Gabe Pressman was 93 years old. The Bronx native Gabriel Stanley "Gabe" Pressman was the dean of New York news and the senior correspondent for WNBC-TV. Gabe was born on February 14, 1924, and died June 23, 2017.

I had the pleasure and honor of working with Gabe at News 4 NY and also of introducing him to intelligent and extremely capable younger journalists, which he truly enjoyed.
