Today we remember Ed Ansin. I had the privilege of working for him as news writer at @WSVN Miami while in college. Then as a reporter at WSVN and at @7News Boston. He loved the broadcasting business and I’m grateful for the opportunities at both his stations. Thanks, Mr. Ansin.

Ed Ansin, the owner of WHDH Boston and WSVN Miami, has passed away. In his own way, he was quietly one of those TV revolutionaries- a label I’d give to people like Roone Arledge, Al Primo, and Ted Turner.

Ed Ansin was not without controversy and always had his critics, but he will always be known for how he re-shaped local news for the better. I grew up watching WHDH and worked there for many years. He was a tough business man. Sad to hear of his passing.

He was my hero. He believed in me when very few people did. He was humble, kind, and fiercely loyal.
When I left WSVN I saw Ed one final time in the parking lot.
He said , “Rosh I believe in you.”
Thank you Mr. Ansin for everything you did for my family. He was a true leader
