He anchored at WDAU (now WYOU) in the 80's, well before my time, and I never met him. I do remember thinking he was really good.
Hemberger's family said Alan suffered a heart attack in Massachusetts. I watched an obituary produced by one of Hemberger's old stations in San Antonio. It noted that he was a Vietnam veteran who suffered from post traumatic stress disorder, and it became worse as the years went on.
Veterans Day is two weeks away. Take a moment to remember Alan Hemberger and all the people like him who carried the scars of war long after the fighting was over.
