Television Personality. He was a veteran Hollywood broadcast journalist who will best be remembered for co-hosting the syndicated program 'At the Movies.' Harris started his showbiz career as a writer on 'The Ralph Story Morning Show' on KABC-TV in Los Angeles. In 1981, he was hired as one of the first reporters for the new TV show 'Entertainment Tonight,' and served as head writer/reviewer on Rona Barrett's gossip segments for the 'Today' show and 'Good Morning America.' He went on to review movies for the syndicated show 'PM Magazine' and spent 14 years doing interviews for Showtime/The Movie Channel that aired in conjunction with movies airing on the networks. In 1986, he and New York critic Rex Reed, assumed the aisle seats occupied by Gene Siskel and Roger Ebert on the nationally syndicated 'At the Movies' after the original pair had left for a similar Disney-produced show. Harris, who more recently went on the road with actresses Barbara Eden and Sophia Loren to host Q&A events with their fans, died after a short bout with cancer.
