A8 Alum Bob Abernethy, Longtime NBC Broadcaster & PBS Host Dies at 93
The Augmented 8 notes with sadness, the passing of our distinguished alumnus, Bob Abernethy, on May 2, 2021, who enjoyed an illustrious career at NBC news and then on PBS as host of Religion and Ethics Newsweekly. The New York Times published his obituary here.
In 2010, the Augmented 8 celebrated it’s 60th anniversary and took the opportunity to record short autobiographical video sketches of our members and so pleased that Bob was able to make the festivities and to contribute this short, albeit modest, video excerpt above.
The group extends its condolences to the Abernethy family.
