Oh how very sad! I was a huge fan of his classic films knowledge and insights! I knew he was having health issues!
I will miss him, and TCM just won't be the same without him! RIP!

A reason why I enjoy watching movies on TCM [besides no commercials] was listening to Robert Osborne give us his little bits of info about the stars and the making of the movie. He will be missed.

I used to watch Robert all the time on TCM back in the 90s and the early 2000s. Also, he always seemed like a really nice guy. Plus, as the article said, he started off as an actor, and one time during the the early 2000s, I could have sworn that I saw a young Robert Osborne on "The Beverly Hillbillies" and tried to search for that on the internet with no avail. However, before posting in this thread, I looked him up on IMDB and sure enough I saw his credits for TBH.

But may he rest in peace.
