NBC: 'Tonight Show' Icon Ed McMahon Dies

NBC: 'Tonight Show' Icon Ed McMahon Dies
Carson Sidekick Reportedly Spent Month In Hospital

POSTED: Tuesday, June 23, 2009
UPDATED: 7:36 am CDT June 23, 2009

LOS ANGELES -- NBC News reports that Ed McMahon, the longtime sidekick of Johnny Carson on the "Tonight Show," has died after long battle with cancer.

The network home of the "Tonight Show" confirmed the television icon's death with McMahon's publicist, Howard Bragman.

He was 86.

McMahon was recently hospitalized at the UCLA Ronald Reagan Hospital in Los Angeles for a bout of pneumonia.

The entertainer was made famous for his role on the "Tonight Show" alongside Carson for 30 years, beginning in 1962. On the "Tonight Show," McMahon became famous for creating the catchphrase "Heeeeeeere's Johnny!"

McMahon also hosted the talent show "Star Search" and co-hosted "TV Bloopers And Practical Jokes" with fellow television legend Dick Clark. He later became a mainstay on commercials as the presenter of giant checks for the American Family Publishers sweepstakes.

McMahon's bankruptcy proceedings brought the aging Californian back into the limelight last year.
