Tom Gibney, the longtime news anchor at CFTO TV in Toronto from 1973 to 2007, died today at 84. He was not an actor by any means, but he can be seen (and heard) as the announcer on the fictional Howard Beale Show in Sidney Lumet's 1976 masterpiece NETWORK, starring Peter Finch. NETWORK was mainly produced at CFTO's Toronto studio, as Lumet figured no American TV station would be willing to provide their premises given the content of the movie. Gibney's career spanned the history of TV journalism, from typewriters and film to computers, satellites and live trucks.
