Joel Connable, former CBS2/KCAL reporter was 39 *

joel-connable-mug.jpgFriends on Facebook and Twitter and staffers at the duopoly newsroom in Studio City are saying that Joel Connable, a reporter at CBS 2/KCAL 9 for three years until 2005, has died. Connable had just started a new anchor gig at KOMO-TV in Seattle last month, after being out of the local news business since 2009. Born in 1973, Connable had type 1 diabetes for many years, according to a Wikipedia page devoted to him. Alan Mendelson, the former KCAL business columnist, posted that Connable's parents revealed he died of an insulin pump malfunction.

There has been nothing posted by KOMO or by CBS LA, that I can find. More information if I get it. Connable attended USC Annenberg, per the Wikipedia page.
