Death: Jul. 16, 2010

Television Journalist. He is best known for his work as a correspondent with CBS News from 1966 to 1985. Raised in Bourbon County, Kentucky, he attended North Middletown High School and enrolled at the University of Kentucky; his studies there were interrupted by service in the US Navy during the Korean War. Upon returning home he resumed his education at the University of Kentucky and attained bachelor's and later master's degrees in English Literature. From 1959 to 1966, Dick worked at WHAS Radio and Television in Louisville, where he served as a writer before advancing to on-air journalist. In 1966, he joined CBS News, anchored by Walter Cronkite, and was assigned to Washington, DC, Atlanta, the Latin America Bureau in Caracas (as Bureau Chief), and Dallas in the Southwest Bureau, which included the areas of Mexico, Central and South America. Among the memorable events he covered were the attempted assassination of George Wallace during his bid for president in 1972 (for which Dick earned an Emmy Award), and the aftermath of the mass suicides in Guyana in 1978. After leaving CBS in 1985, he returned to the University of Kentucky and served as Associate Professor of Journalism. Dick authored several books, among them "Follow the Storm" (2002), which recounted events during his career as South American Bureau Chief from 1978 to 1979. He died from prostate cancer. (bio by: C.S.)
