Fred Hickman dead and obituary, American broadcaster cause of death

RIP Fred Hickman. If you are about my age, he was one of the faces on your sports-crazy youth on CNN. He was a true OG in the field. Him, Nick Charles, Vince Cellini, Van Earl Wright, Jerome Jurenovich, etc. They were our internet before the internet.

Frederick Hickman (born October 17, 1956) is an American television broadcaster who is currently the anchor and editor-in-chief of the evening news program of the Black News Channel of the African American Cable News Network. He has also worked at CNN, TBS, YES Network and ESPN. Born and raised in Springfield, Illinois, he graduated from Coe College in Cedar Rapids, Iowa in 1978, and joined CNN’s “Sports Tonight” as the original co-host in 1980. He won CableACE Awards in 1989 and 1993, and was a Newcomer Award recipient at the York Sports Emmy in 2004.

I remember him well.
