Longtime NBC correspondent Irving R. Levine has died.
He was from Pawtucket, Rhode Island. I never knew that! I didn't realize he was so widely praised for his economic reports that were easily understandable to the average Joe. I also didn't know he was the first network reporter that really covered the economy.
What I remember is the bow tie and his delivery, particularly his sign off: "Irving R. Levine, NBC News, Washington." Here's a report, to refresh your memory.
