L.A.-based TV icon Huell Howser, who was famous for hosting the madly popular travel series California’s Gold in KCET, died at the age of 67.
According to The Huffington Post, Howser died at his home Sunday night due to natural causes, as told by Ayn Allen, the corporate communications manager of KCET.
No other details were provided, TMZ reported.
Howser appeared in California’s Gold for 18 seasons, in total of 440 episodes.
He also appeared in Visiting with Huell Howser and Road Trip with Huell Howser, two series similar to his own Californian travel show.
Howser had an enthusiasm to combine work and comedy, where viewers loved him the most.
“Huell elevated the simple joys and undiscovered nuggets of living in our great state. He made the magnificence and power of nature seems accessible by bringing it into our living rooms. Most importantly, he reminded us to find the magic and wonderment in our lives every day. Huell was able to brilliantly capture the wonder in obscurity,” KCET said in a statement.
