Siegel, who got his start at the network by working for New York affiliate WABC-TV, had battled colon cancer, the station said.

“Joel was an important part of ABC News and we will miss him,” ABC News President David Westin said in a statement. “He was a brilliant reviewer and a great reporter. But much more, he was our dear friend and colleague. Our thoughts and prayers are with Joel’s family.”

His birthday would have been next Saturday.
