R. Buchanan, Ex-tv Manager

Posted: May 04, 1992

Robert C. Buchanan, 67, a former stage manager for KYW-TV who worked with network television personalities, died yesterday at his home in the Torresdale section.

During his 37-year career, Mr. Buchanan coordinated camera locations and props for entertainers whose shows originated from the Channel 3 studios. He worked with Ernie Kovacs, Mike Douglas, Tom Snyder, Maury Povich and Jessica Savitch, among others.

His job with KYW, in fact, was the only position he held after graduating

from Temple University in 1951.

Mr. Buchanan retired in 1988.

He was a Navy veteran of World War II and the Korean War.

He is survived by his wife, the former Helen Harris; a son, Robert; a stepson, John Broadnix, and two grandchildren.

Services and burial will be private.
