IRVING R. LEVINE, 86

Longtime NBC economics correspondent

Irving R. Levine, the bow-tied NBC newsman who explained the fine points of economics to millions of viewers for nearly a quarter century, died Friday of complications from prostate cancer in Washington, D.C.

Mr. Levine was a presence at NBC since 1950 when he began covering the Korean War until his retirement in 1995. He had become the network's full-time economics correspondent in 1971 and in the last five years of his tenure also did weekly commentaries on CNBC. He also appeared on Meet the Press more than 100 times over the years.
