ATLANTA - A broadcasting legend and former WSB-TV news director and chief anchor passed away Tuesday morning.

Ray Moore was less than a week shy of his 91st birthday when he died at Atlanta Hospice from swelling of his brain caused by a fall at his home last week.

The Georgia Broadcast Hall of Famer's career spanned from the early 50s into the 80s.

During his time at WSB-TV, he recruited luminaries such as Tom Brokaw, George Page and John Palmer.

In addition to working for WSB-TV, Moore reported for NBC and worked for Georgia Tech when he created a cutting-edge video presentation that was instrumental in bringing the Olympics to Atlanta in 1996.

A family member said services are scheduled for Saturday at 3 p.m. at the Oak Grove United Methodist Church where Moore and his wife, Sara, are long-time members.
