Death - Miscellaneous

Dick CavettDick Cavett Show - The first on-stage death (from natural causes) occurred on June 8, 1971 during an interview segments of the talk show program THE DICK CAVETT SHOW after featured guest, nutrition expert J.I. Rodale, 73, informed everyone "I'm so healthy that I expect to live on and on."

As Dick Cavett welcomed his next guest, Pete Hamill, he heard a "sound like snoring" coming from Rodale still on stage. Upon inspection he discovered Rodale dead of an apparent heart attack. The taped program never aired, however. The following night Dick Cavett informed his audience of the tragic occurrence.
