Ted Walsh

Ted Walsh, 65, retired CBS program practices exec, died Jan. 4 in Los Angeles of natural causes.

Walsh began his showbiz career shortly after World War II in special services, performing in soldier shows in occupied Japan.

As a veteran enrolled in the theater school of the Dock Street Theater in Charleston, S.C., he studied with Hal Cooper, a leading actor and director at the theater.

Shortly after Cooper moved to New York to become a producer-writer-director at the pioneering DuMont tv network, Walsh moved north and was initiated into tv production as Cooper’s assistant.

Walsh’s varied career in tv production on both coasts culminated in his association with CBS on the west coast.

No survivors.
