bill beutel obituaryBill Beutel may be most recognizable to New Yorkers, as he anchored the WABC evening newscasts for 30 years, right up until January of 2001. He briefly returned to WABC as a reporter after the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks. His trademark sign-off was, "Good luck and be well." He also briefly hosted the morning program on ABC that eventually became Good Morning America. Beutel won several Emmy awards and a coveted Peabody.

Beutel died at his home in Pinehurst, North Carolina.

Wow. He was an icon in NY. Whenever I think of the news when I was a kid I think of him and co-anchor Roger Grimsby.
