Beloved New York journalist Arnold Diaz loses battle with cancer, dead at 74

New York’s beloved journalist Arnold Diaz, who covered the news for 50 years, lost his battle with blood cancer at the age of 74, his former network PIX11 announced.

Diaz, having worked for a number of outlets, was best known for his “Shame on You” consumer-investigative segments that aired on CBS2. 

The “New York City staple,” as referred to by the New York Post, won nearly 50 Emmys throughout his career. He also reported for FOX 5, PIX11, ABC7 and ABC News’ “20/20” program.

“One of his final reports for PIX11 involved Spectrum wires hanging from a NYCHA development in Long Island City, causing safety issues such as the wind blowing the wires against residents’ windows and breaking them,” the Post reported.

Multiple myeloma, the type of cancer Diaz had, is reportedly more common in men than women. 

According to Mayo Clinic, “in myeloma, the cancer cells build up in the bone marrow and crowd out the healthy blood cells. This leads to tiredness and not being able to fight infections.”
