Former ATV Evening News anchor Dave Wright dead at 82


Maritimers will be saddened to hear of the death of one of the region's best-known broadcasters today. Dave Wright died this morning at the age of 82 after battling cancer. He created ATV's Live at Five in 1982, a show that evolved from Dave Wright's Notebook which debuted in 1976. He left Live at Five in 1986 for a broadcasting job in the U.S. but returned a few years later to anchor the ATV Evening News. He retired for good in 1993.
