Longtime Channel 3 anchor Denise D'Ascenzo has passed away

Channel 3's Dennis House announced the death of longtime WFSB anchor Denise D'Ascenzo this evening. Many of us, myself included, grew up watching Denise and Dennis on Channel 3. Tributes have poured in on Twitter from journalists from all major TV stations in Connecticut, as well as Governor Ned Lamont.

Denise was only 61, and died unexpectedly earlier today after being on the air just last night.

The entire KC101 and iHeartMedia Connecticut family wishes to offer our thoughts, prayers, and support to her family as well as the WFSB family.

RIP, Denise.
