Remembering Sheriff John Rovick: An iconic figure in Los Angeles television history has passed on....
The iconic "Sheriff John" (Rovick) passed away on Saturday at the age of 93.
I, and millions of other "Baby Boomers" grew up watching Sheriff John here on KTTV Channel 11 in Los Angeles.
Loved this guy. He was everyone's BFF!
During the 1950 -60 eras, "Sheriff John" was a very popular TV personality playing a friendly, fatherly law enforcement officer that hosted two Southern California kiddie shows: the "SHERIFF JOHN'S LUNCH BRIGADE (11:30am to 12:30pm), and an afternoon show called the "SHERIFF JOHN'S CARTOON TIME".
