Longtime Vegas resident Steve Schorr, known to Southern Nevada as a face of television news as well as community service, died November 12 at the age of 74.

His family issued a statement Friday, saying Schorr passed away from natural causes.  

Schorr was a former television news anchor (KSNV Channel 3, KLAS Channel 8 and KTNV Channel 13), earning national, regional and state awards for news journalism including two Emmy Awards for news anchoring, two National Freedom Foundation Awards, a Headliner Award and an Armstrong Award for Broadcasting.

Schorr was most recognized as the longtime spokesman for Cox Communications, where he previously served as Vice President of Public and Government Affairs.  His family says he was very proud of all the students – past and present – at his namesake Steve Schorr Elementary School.

Funeral services and places for memorial donations are pending.
