The Bay Area has lost a truly great newsman and a dedicated radio vet.
George Harris, a KCBS radio reporter, who covered the South Bay and several other beats, including anchoring as well, passed away Monday night due to kidney failure. He was only 61.
KCBS reporter, Bob Butler offered respects to Harris on his Facebook page.
Harris began his stint at KCBS in 1987. Highlights of his career included coverage of the Mt. St. Helens explosion, the Loma Prieta Earthquake, the East Bay Hills Fire and the riots in South Central Los Angeles.
