She continued working at the station for at least 17 years, the New York Times reported.

Paschall said that his mother's condition started to deteriorate about two weeks ago when her doctors found that the cancer had spread to her brain and the family made a decision to bring her home. "She was just extremely grateful for everything we've done for her, and we would do it again in a heartbeat".

Marsh, 63, who worked under nightly news programs like CBS and NBC throughout her blooming career, passed away at her residence in South Kent, Connecticut on Tuesday. He remembered her as a "top professional" and a "sweet friend".

WNBC anchor Darlene Rodriguez reflected on her time with Marsh, saying that she brought her 'down to the studio and sat me on the set and proceeded to give me tips and show me how she does it'.

After she and several other anchors were fired by WCBS in 1996, WNBC-TV picked her up in about a week, Paschall said.

She began her career at WABI-TV in Bangor, Me., where she ran the teleprompter with her toes while on the air. However, she left the station in 2003 after she lost her anchor slot. She was born in a Detroit suburb and worked at stations in ME and Texas before coming to NY for a job in October 1979.


Colleagues and admirers of the beloved news anchor expressed their condolences on social media Wednesday.

Reporter Pablo Guzman, wrote on Twitter, "This hurts". And, a GOOD person.

She added: 'So sad to hear this.

Paschall was moved by the support.

Marsh was born in Detroit in 1954. She had her son with her first husband, Nathaniel Paschall. She is also survived by her second husband, Paul Nargeolet, 71.
