Arthur Lodge

Arthur Lodge, a supervisor of early television news for NBC and later producer of TV documentaries, died of a heart attack Sunday. He was 75.

Lodge joined NBC radio news in 1945 after three years’ service in the Coast Guard. Before the war he worked for United Press in Minneapolis.

From 1949 to 1953 he supervised the writers, editors and cameramen of the newly organized NBC television news and special events department. Reuven Frank, former NBC News president, credited Lodge with establishing rules that TV news writers still follow.

Lodge eventually formed his own company, Arthur Lodge Prods., which made television, educational and corporate documentaries.

Lodge is survived by a daughter, a son, a sister and two brothers.
