Alyssa Milano, former New York Times writer, dies at age 69
The former New Times writer who published the first stories of the Donald Trump era died Friday at age 79, according to her son.
AlyssA Milano had been battling Alzheimer’s for years, according her son, Scott Milano.
“It was a long time ago,” Scott Milan, 41, told The Associated Press in a phone interview.
“She was very proud of the work she did.
She was a great writer.”
Alyss Milano’s career spanned two decades.
She covered the White House, first as an intern for President George W. Bush, and then as a Washington bureau chief for The New York Herald Tribune.
She also worked as a reporter for Newsweek and the Los Angeles Times.
She left journalism in 2011 after the paper hired her as a national correspondent.
Milano began her career at the Times in 1967 and served as an editor from 1969 until 1974, according.
In the late 1970s, she covered the Vietnam War for the Times and later joined the paper’s bureau chief bureau, the Washington bureau.
Milan wrote extensively about the assassination of President John F. Kennedy, including his death and his wife’s death.
“Alyssa was a terrific reporter and was a tremendous talent,” said her son Scott Milann.
“I think people who knew her will never forget her.
She will be missed, but she will be a legend.”
A new era dawned in 1976.
The Times had moved from a New York suburb to a large office on Pennsylvania Avenue in Washington.
The paper moved its headquarters to Times Square in 1986, a move that coincided with the launch of the newspaper’s online news operation.
But in 1982, the paper moved to a smaller, more expensive office in the heart of Manhattan.
The New Times is owned by News Corp., and Milano wrote her first Times article in 1983.
“The Times has always been a little less than perfect,” Scott said.
“But I do think that with her as editor, she did a phenomenal job.”
Scott Milana said Alyss A. Milankova has been a “very special daughter” and that she will continue to write for the paper.
“People will always remember her,” he said.
The newspaper is still in business.
A special memorial service for Alyss and her family is being held at a hotel in New York on Saturday, where she will speak at a memorial event.
Milania’s son, Brian Milano of Chicago, said in a statement that he is “deeply saddened by the passing of Alyss.
A very special daughter, and her memory will always live on.”
A former classmate, Paul K. Gallegos, told the AP that he has known Alyss for 15 years.
“There was something about her that made you feel good,” Gallegas said.
A former colleague of Milano told the Associated Press that the paper had a lot of power, and she was a force to be reckoned with.
“At times she was very, very difficult,” the colleague said.
She had a very, big heart and was always willing to help people.
“Milano died at her home in Arlington, Va., about an hour’s drive from Washington.
She lived alone.
A memorial service is scheduled for 8 p.m.
Friday at the Virginia Commonwealth University campus.
