Charles W. Taylor, veteran ABC News Radio producer and reporter, died Sunday of a heart attack at his home in Rockville, Md. He was 58.
Taylor wrote and produced award-winning specials for ABC News for more than 30 years. His assignments included coverage of Haiti and the Middle East, the NASA space shuttle and Apollo missions, and major political campaigns and elections.
Born and raised in Philadelphia, Taylor joined ABC Radio in 1966 as a newswriter and was promoted to senior editor in 1968, a position he held until 1977.
He subsequently worked as a producer-reporter on documentaries and special events for ABC Radio before joining ABC News Radio in Washington, where he served as a member of the White House press corps.
Taylor won more than 50 national awards for his work.
He is survived by wife Glenda and three children.
