California public television host Huell Howser dies at 67

California's Gold host and public television icon Huell Howser died Sunday night at the age of 67, Los Angeles Times reports. Howser was known for his enthusiasm for California's historical and natural sights, businesses, and residents. 

"Every night on KCET, Huell introduced us to people we would not have otherwise met, and took us to places we would not have otherwise have traveled," KCET President and Chief Executive Al Jerome said in a statement, according to the Times. 

Howser stopped by Fosselman's Ice Cream Company in Alhambra and described the shoppe as the "best ice cream and nicest family in town." Watch the video below.

  1. I was very sad to hear about Howser’s death. Imagine an “okie” (I use it in a loving sense) from Tennessee awaking us to wonders of our own state? But I’m sure he’ll be looking for interesting people to interview in Heavan. May God take care of Howser
