Gil Noble, a legendary black journalist, has died at 80.
Noble hosted the New York public affairs show “Like It Is” for 33 years. WABC, the station he worked for, said that he created “the largest body of programs and documentaries on African Americans in the country.”
“Like It Is” was born out of an effort to put more African American programs on television in the wake of the civil rights and black power movements. The show began in 1968, and it was only a stroke that forced Noble off the air in 2011.
