A sad day for the District of Columbia.

From NBC Washington‘s president and general manager Jackie Bradford:

“We are heartbroken to announce that Jim Vance died this morning.

For more than 45 years, Jim Vance was not only the soul of NBC4 but of the entire Washington area. His smooth voice, brilliant mind and unforgettable laugh leaves each of us with a tremendous void.

Vance told viewers earlier this year that he was undergoing treatment for cancer.

Vance joined the NBC station in 1969 and moved to the anchor chair in 1972.”
