A handsome, silver-crowned news anchor whose soothing baritone voice and warm familiarity helped him to endure as one of L.A.'s most beloved and trustworthy newscasters, Jerry Dunphy's remarkable 40 years as a broadcaster brought him both instant local recognition and numerous film roles in which he usually played a character fairly close to home. Born in Milwaukee in 1921, Dunphy served as a captain in the Army Air Corps during WWII before returning to his home state to finish college and begin his career as a broadcaster in Peoria, IL. Subsequently working for CBS Radio and ABC, Dunphy later moved to Los Angeles, which positioned him well for numerous roles as a broadcaster in film and television. Appearing in such television series as Batman and Roseanne and such features as Oh, God! (1977) and Independence Day (1996), Dunphy's persona was the definition of the distinguished and sincere newscaster. After suffering heart attacks in both 1978 and 1991, Dunphy died in May of 2002 after stricken by a third heart attack in front of his L.A. condo. He was 80.
