WNBC’s John Noel Remembered as ‘Simply a Good Man’

Tributes continue to come in following the death of John Noel, a veteran WNBC reporter who died of brain cancer Thursday. On WNBC‘s evening newscast, Chuck Scarborough paused for a minute to remember Noel.

“From the day he learned he was sick until the end, John refused to feel sorry for himself, always telling us how lucky he was to have such a wonderful job and family,” Scarborough said.

“To say that John was a good and decent man would be the understatement of all understatements,” Noel’s longtime agent and friend, Mort Meisner, told TVSpy in an email. “John lived and died a man of honor …True to his word, John fought on to the very end. John personified courage. I loved the man dearly.”

The full tributes from Scarborough and Meisner are after the jump. Read more
