US TV, but for here anyway.

 

Being reported that Joanna Cameron (sometimes JoAnna Cameron), actress who played the title role in the children's series Isis, later The Secrets Of Isis (with hindsight unfortunately named, ha!): 

 

IMDB: https://www.imdb.com/name/nm0131622/

 

Was in the Columbo where the still living Dick Van Dyke did it, in which she plays the assistant to the foolish photographer.

Didn't really know where to put this

 

Fred Dinenage, former presenter of kids show How?, has retired from Meridian News.  He seems to be healthy enough from the coverage on the national news

There's a 'Presenters' thread, where this news broke a couple of months ago;  the local news coverage included tributes from 85 year-old Lawrie McMeneny, who looked & sounded pretty good, and 66 year=old Paul O'Grady, who looks absolutelya wful, but is apparently still working and sounds just the same. Former weatherman Carl Tyler added his tribute too, looked alright for his age (must be over 80). Dinenage still has projects on the go, including the return of the latest regeneration of How? due for broadcast next year.

This one hurts, as it was a part of my childhood dating back to some of its earliest years. Bob McGrath, who went by "Bob" on the show, was an original Sesame Street cast member. The show debuted in late 1969. McGrath was a regular through 2016, when two other long-time cast members and he did not have their contracts renewed. Nonetheless, McGrath returned for the 50th anniversary show in November 2019, where he shared one segment with Loretta Long, aka Susan, who was also an original cast member and who remained on the show until 2017. He was frail, at that point.

Think Delgado also died this year?, which leaves Roscoe Orman from the 2016 cast axed. Though he is much younger.

Yes, it was only a few months ago Emilio Delgado passed. He looked even more frail than McGrath on the 50th anniversary show. He wore a hat, likely to hide he'd gone bald from cancer treatments. And, speaking of bald, yes Orman was younger than the other two. The show's third (excluding unaired pilot episode) and most enduring Gordon is 78. His last credit was 2020.
