Looks like Kevin Spacey... may God rest his soul Rest In Peace one of the main reasons i always watched 20/20 growing up. RIP I am gonna miss this trooper. RIP Hugh Downs. Thank you for the memories. He probably died from embarrassment at the state of journalism today.

I met him in the early 60's when i accompanied my mother, who was a contestant on Concentration. It was exciting and she did well! 😔 Too bad we don’t have more journalism like he was known for. Now we have mostly political hacks that spew political propaganda with their opinions spewed in between. Hugh Downs was one of those guys that when you read his name, in your mind you read it in his voice.

RIP. That breed of Broadcaster is almost gone. Another great news anchor that just reported the news without spin, like Cronkite, Brinkley and Huntley. ~ such a comforting guy… hits harder. He lived long.... RIP 💐. A great broadcaster-from the “old school”- R.I.P. So sad!! Who remembers him from Concentration?
