Posted: October 08, 2012

John Rovick, 93, the beloved host of a children's show in Los Angeles throughout the 1950s and '60s, died Saturday in Boise, Idaho, after a brief illness, his former station, KTTV-TV, told the Associated Press.

For nearly two decades, Mr. Rovick appeared on the daily Cartoon Time show that earned him an Emmy Award for outstanding children's program. It was so popular that KTTV said it added another Rovick show, Sheriff John's Lunch Brigade, that stayed on the air until 1970.

Mr. Rovick is survived by his wife and two daughters. - AP
