Sam Rubin, a popular entertainment reporter on KTLA since 1991, died Friday. He was 64.

He was a staple on red carpets through the years, and hosted the station’s Live From the Academy Awards segment. Outside Hollywood, he appeared on BBC’s TV and radio segments and Channel 9.

Some of the A-listers he’s interviewed include Zendaya, Mariah Carey, Sting, Usher and Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson.

He was also one of the founding members of the Broadcast Film Critics’ Association and led his own show, Hollywood Uncensored with Sam Rubin, for 120 episodes.

Rubin received several accolades during his career. He was also honoured by the National Hispanic Media Coalition in 2013, receiving its annual Impact Award for outstanding integrity in broadcast journalism.

Additionally, he was a recipient of a Golden Mic award, a lifetime achievement award from the Southern California Broadcasters Association, and was named the best entertainment reporter by the Los Angeles Press Club.

Rubin died at his home of a heart attack. His last appearance on KTLA was on May 9. He did not appear Friday on KTLA’s 7-9 a.m. “Morning News” as usual. KTLA reported that Rubin’s colleagues said he “showed no outward signs of illness” the day before.

Rubin was a fixture in Hollywood who enjoyed rare longevity with a single station throughout his career. On camera, Rubin was unfailingly jocular and warm, often talking about his off-air activities with his wife and four children. Chatting with Rubin live on KTLA has long been a staple of any publicity tour for stars of movies, TV shows, concert tours and anything else involving entertainment.
