Veteran Triangle Journalist Dies

Veteran Triangle journalist Larry Stogner, who was the trusted face viewers turned to on WTVD for years, died Sunday night at his home. He was 69.

Stogner had publicly battled ALS for nearly two years. He did his last broadcast as a WTVD anchor in February 2015.


He had first reported his illness to viewers a few weeks earlier.

“I am sure that in recent months you’ve noticed a change in my voice. My speech, slower,” he said on that newscast. “As it turns out, I have ALS, Lou Gehrig’s disease.

“There is no cure. My career in broadcast journalism is coming to an end.”

Stogner started work at WTVD, now the Triangle’s ABC affiliate, in 1976. He joined as a reporter before moving to the anchor spot in 1982. The UNC-Chapel Hill graduate also was a Vietnam veteran, and he traveled back there in 1995 to report on the 20th anniversary of the fall of Saigon. Stogner made a documentary of the trip, “Back to Nam,” which was nominated for an Emmy.

In the news industry, it’s not unusual to work at a half-dozen outlets over a career; to move out of reporting and into editing or producing; or to leave the business for something more lucrative. A Stogner, who stayed in the same market – essentially in the same job – over an entire career is a rarity.

“I tell people we didn’t need Wikipedia; we had Stognerpedia,” Steve Daniels, who took over the 11 p.m. broadcast at WTVD from Stogner years ago, told The News & Observer last year.
