Condolences to family and friends of former WBZ-A/BOSTON evening host DAVID FINNEGAN, who died MONDAY (10/12) of lung cancer in BLUFFTON, SC, according to the BOSTON GLOBE.
FINNEGAN ran twice for Mayor of BOSTON in 1979 and 1983, and in between hosted 6-10p on WBZ and also hosted "WEEKEND WITH DAVE FINNEGAN" on CBS affiliate WNAC-TV (now NBC affiliate WHDH-TV).
