Charles Kimbrough: He Portrayed a Stoic TV Newsman on the Show “Murphy Brown”

From a New York Times obit by Alex Williams headlined “Charles Kimbrough, Who Portrayed a Stoic TV Newsman on ‘Murphy Brown'”:

Charles Kimbrough, an actor known for his patrician looks and stately bearing who was nominated for an Emmy Award for portraying a comically rigid news anchor on the hit sitcom “Murphy Brown,” died in Culver City, Calif.

After decades of stage work in New York, including a Tony Award-nominated performance in the original 1970 Broadway production of the Steven Sondheim musical “Company,” Mr. Kimbrough finally got his first taste of mainstream fame alongside Candice Bergen on “Murphy Brown,” the popular series set in a television newsroom that ran for 10 seasons on CBS starting in 1988. (He reprised his character for three episodes of the 2018 reboot.)
