Broadcast Veteran Walter Furley Passed Away

Long-time broadcast journalist Walter Furley, who anchored local news for the CBS affiliate KZTV for 45 years, passed away Wednesday.

Furley's deep voice and mild manner brought South Texans news that spanned from the Cuban Missile Crisis to man's flight to the moon. He hosted local telethons and would often produce commercials, most recently for a local hearing aid and a gold buying company.

Furley passed away at his home after a battle with cancer.
