Chicago anchor and reporter Marty McNeeley, who worked on-air for WGN’s 9:00 p.m. news in the 1970s and 80s and was host of the station’s “Creature Features” show, has died.

McNeeley was born in Youngstown, OH, and worked in radio and TV in Cleveland, Detroit and, after leaving Chicago, at ABC Radio in New York.

A station spokesperson told the Chicago Sun-Times McNeeley died of complications from Alzheimer’s at the age of 86.
