Dave Herman, president and general manager of KOB-TV, died Friday of pancreatic cancer.
He was 57.
Herman had continued to work at the Hubbard Broadcasting Inc. station until he was hospitalized last week.
He went to work in sales for KOB-TV in 1959 and was named the station’s national sales manager in 1966.
The Minnesota native worked in Sioux Falls, S.D., and Sioux City, Iowa, before moving to New Mexico in 1956 to take a job at KQEO radio.
