In Memoriam: Gabe Pressman

Statement from Governor Andrew Cuomo

"Gabe Pressman always gave you the story straight, and always asked the tough questions that New Yorkers wanted answered.

"As people increasingly turned to TV for news, it was Gabe who became the most important and trusted face on New York City airwaves. He was a true pioneer in the industry. Gabe was the first TV reporter to bring a film crew into the street to cover news where it was happening.

"Over the course of his long and distinguished career, Gabe was the North Star for several generations of New York reporters, fighting doggedly to hold public officials accountable and to protect the rights of the press.

"I am deeply saddened by Gabe's passing, but know all New Yorkers will continue to benefit from the contributions he made over a lifetime that spoke truth to power."
