PINELLAS PARK, Fla. (AP) — Longtime CBS Radio News reporter Lou Miliano has died in Florida. He was 67.
A news release from CBS News says Miliano died Monday at a Pinellas Park hospice. It said he had been diagnosed with lung cancer several years ago.
Miliano's career as a broadcast journalist spanned four decades. The Jersey City, New Jersey, native spent much of the 1980s overseas as a radio correspondent before joining local WCBS News Radio in New York in 1989, where he could also be heard nationally on other CBS-owned stations. In 1998, he joined the CBS Radio Network in Washington, D.C.
After decades of reporting in the U.S. and abroad on major stories, Miliano took a New York-based anchoring position. He retired in 2007.
