By Andrew Gauthier 

Longtime KGO reporter Joyce Shank died recently after suffering a heart attack.  She was 66.

Shank worked for KGO, an ABC-affiliate in San Francisco, in the 70s and 80s.  She also spent time with WABC in New York.

According to the Marin Independent Journal:


Shank was walking her beloved dog, Meeghee, on a beach in Morro Bay when she suffered a heart attack. She died three days later at French Hospital in San Luis Obispo.

“A lot of former coworkers came from New York and San Francisco and all over,” Aaron Linn, a friend of Shank’s, told the Marin Independent Journal. “They took a walk she typically did with her dog.”
