WABC photographer Todd Pierce has died after a long battle with cancer. He was 57.
Pierce had worked at the New York ABC owned station for more than twenty years.
“His talent, professionalism, his sense of humor, wide smile, and most importantly, his big heart touched us all,” the station said. “We are all devastated by his loss and want his family to know how loved and respected Todd was to us.”
“Todd was a creative force – one of the best photographers and editors that I ever had the good fortune to know,” WABC ep Bob Monek wrote on his Facebook page. “Todd had a keen eye for impactful images, many of which he shared on his Instagram account. Above all, though, Todd was a really wonderful dad My heart goes out to his wife and daughter. Rest well, my friend. Until we meet again.”
He is survived by his wife and daughter.
