Woody Robertson Passes

Woody Robertson 1933 - 2012

Our friend and long time Ranger Hal director, Woody Robertson died Saturday in Indianapolis of a heart attack.
He was staying with his daughter in Indianapolis while filming features for the Super Bowl.

Rest in Peace, Woody.

Here is the announcement as reported in Daves Hugh's DCRTV website:

Three-time Emmy winner, TV/film director and producer Woody Robertson, who got his start at Channel-9 Broadcast House in the 1960s, died of a heart attack Saturday. During his time at WTOP-TV, Woody was perhaps best known for directing the "Ranger Hal" show. Over the decades, he produced and/or directed programming for the Olympics (for which he shared an Olympic medal), news and sports at different times for ABC, BBC, CBC, CBS, NBC, and ESPN, as well as entertainment extravaganzas for Elton John, LeAnn Rimes, and Reba McEntire, among others. He was 78.
