Legendary WHEC-TV Reporter Warren Doremus Dies at Age 91


His voice made him a distinctive figure in local media for more than four decades, and it also captivated the woman whom Warren Doremus ultimately married.

Mr. Doremus, one of the most respected television journalists Rochester has ever known, died Monday due to complications stemming from a fall early last week. He was 91.

“The day after Father’s Day he took a fall,” his son, Wyatt said. “He loved being on his patio just off his kitchen. Neighbors found him, called the ambulance, but they don’t know how long he’d been lying there. He was seriously injured. He had been hanging in there for the better part of a week, but over the last few days he wasn’t responding to the efforts in the trauma center at Strong and he slipped away today.”

When Mr. Doremus retired from WHEC-TV (Channel 10) in 1991, the Democrat and Chronicle profiled the longtime reporter, news director and program director.
