The Tulsa area is saying goodbye to a local legend.
Bob Hower has passed away.
He was a long-time anchor for KTUL starting in 1970. He started the segment "Waiting Child" in 1980, which features children up for adoption looking for a forever family.
His daughter Pamela says Hower died early Saturday morning surrounded by family. "He made his transition totally in peace and both JD and I were blessed to be with him and guide him to the white light and the crowd that was waiting to welcome him, especially his little girl, Stacey," Pamela says.
"He was telling me yesterday that he needed to go 'home'," Pamela says.
"Please keep in your heart and say a prayer for him and raise a glass to his new heavenly journey," Pamela says.
The family is taking time before planning a memorial service.
