CBS Sunday Morning, in its obituaries feature yesterday, showed a brief card announcing that Dennis Cunningham had died at the age of 85.
I was a fan of his work on WCAU-TV Philadelphia (then a CBS station) before he went to New York. I always liked his attitude and his passion for the artists he covered.
The news item below - aired ten days ago on his old New York station, WCBS-TV - is the only notice I have found online. The accompanying video includes just an announcement from the anchor - no photos or video clips of Cunningham.

NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) – We have some sad news to pass along.
Dennis Cunningham, a longtime member of the CBS2 family, has passed away.
Dennis served as the arts and entertainment editor here at CBS2 from 1977 until he retired in 2001.
Dennis died after a long battle with COPD.
In a statement. his family said he dedicated his life to the theater and arts, and while a dark Broadway has darkened even more, the ghost lights shine brighter.
Our thoughts are with the Cunningham family.
