Kids' TV icon Fred Rogers dies at age 74

28 February 2003 | The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News news »

Fred Rogers, who gently invited millions of children to be his neighbor as host of the public television show Mister Rogers' Neighborhood for more than 30 years, died early Thursday of cancer. He was 74. Rogers died at his Pittsburgh home, said family spokesman David Newell, who played Mr. McFeely on the show. Rogers had been diagnosed with stomach cancer after the holidays, Newell said. "He was so genuinely, genuinely kind, a wonderful person," Newell said. "His mission was to work with families and children for television. ... That was his passion, his mission, and he did it from Day 1." From 1968-2000, Rogers, an ordained Presbyterian minister, produced the show at Pittsburgh public television station WQED. The final episode, which was taped in December 2000, aired in August 2001, though reruns of Mister Rogers' Neighborhood remain a daytime mainstay of PBS affiliates nationwide. Mister Rogers debuted on PBS one year before the launch of another groundbreaking children's program, Sesame Street. Both shows were instrumental in establishing PBS as a national alternative to ABC, CBS and NBC in the late 1960s and early '70s, long before young viewers had the option of round-the-clock children's programming on such cable outlets as Nickelodeon and the Disney Channel. »
