Eddie Alexander, a former Bay Area and San Diego TV sports anchor has died.
Alexander, who was known as "Fast Eddie", worked at KRON from 1971-1974. He used the "Good Luck everybody!" as an outro to his sportscasts. He also had a stint at KTVU.
Alexander led a charmed life on and off the airwaves but had several legal issues confront him later in his life. He was charged with committing grand theft and defrauding investors of about $2 million in 1998. That was but one of many fraud and embezzlement cases he was accused of and convicted and served prison time
A Bay Area broadcast veteran said he was the ultimate character and con man: "The guy was a fast-talker--a real funny dude who'd charm the hell out of you, but you didn't know if he was scamming you or not. It's too bad because he was very talented."
A Memorial service celebrating Alexander's life will be held on Wednesday, February 27 at 11AM at Duggan's Serra Mortuary in Daly City.
