To whom it may concern,

Not sure you’re aware of this but Ben Blank, considered by many to be the father of TV News graphics, died on Tuesday at 87.
He invented the visual language still used today around the world of Over-The Shoulder graphics, full screen information graphics and other sophisticated visuals that help us tell a story.
The enclosed article gives a better sense of his accomplishments.
Thanks,
Hal

Hal Aronow-Theil
Creative Director, ABC News
