Longtime WRGB Channel 6 reporter Ken Screven dies at 71

Longtime reporter and trailblazer Ken Screven has died.

Ken reported at WRGB, Channel 6, for more than 30 years and was the first Black man hired as a TV reporter in the Capital Region.

He was known for his booming voice and his thoughtful approach to reporting stories.

He had a commanding presence in the field, and was the reporter many of us looked up to.

Ken Screven would have turned 72 years old this September.

May he rest in peace.
