KUSI anchor David Davis retired a few months ago after years of reporting local news in San Diego.
Earlier this week, he died while on a cross-country trip on his motorcycle.
The station reports the fatal accident happened near Dallas on Wednesday.
Davis, who was a longtime Harley Davidson enthusiast, joined the KUSI team in 2003.
He graduated from the University of Tennessee at Knoxville with a degree in communications, and was a huge Tennessee Volunteer fan. Davis anchored in four states across America.
He received many awards for his work, including spot news coverage of the Jeffrey Dahmer capture, and week-long 9/11 reports from New York.
