Producer Phil Noyes and photog Luis Fuerte talk about Huell

There has been a mountain of online and on-air reaction to the death of Huell Howser, the longtime presence on KCET through "California Gold" and other shows about the state and Los Angeles. Here are some players in the Howser saga that you may want to see. Phil Noyes was a producer for Howser for almost 19 years, and cameraman Luis Fuerte was the "Louie" who Howser frequently referred to in the field. They discussed his death in the studio at KCET with Val Zavala.

Zavala's announcement about Howser's death Monday evening on "SoCal Connected" and the video obituary is also worth seeing. I can't embed it because KCET codes its videos to start automatically, and the audio from the two videos would conflict. So click here.

KCET's website also posted clips from author DJ Waldie, station executives Al Jerome, Mary Mazur and Bohdan Zachary, and others.

At the Huffington Post, Los Angeles host Jacob Soboroff led a conversation about Howser on HuffPost Live with Kevin Roderick of LA Observed and John Rabe of KPCC's "Off-Ramp."

In a popular early LA Observed video, Soboroff ran into Howser at downtown's Los Angeles State Historic Park and the two had a video moment. They later relived the moment. Here's the original.

Here also is Kevin on KCRW on Monday discussing Howser.
