(MIAMIHERALD) — WPLG-Channel 10 announced Monday the death of news anchor Todd Tongen, an on-air presence since 1989. Tongen was 56.
Tongen most recently worked the weekend anchor desk with Neki Mohan, but he missed Sunday’s broadcast. In a story on its website, the station said his wife, Karen Tongen, who was out of town, couldn’t reach him. A request of a friend to check on him led to police finding him.
