May 4, 2009 3:39:27 AM PDT
An original member of the Eyewitness News team has died. Milton Lewis was famous for his fictitious "Mike the Fish" NY oddsmaker, and his trademark phrase "now listen to this."

Milton was a former newspaper man turned local t-v legend.

As one long-time Eyewitness News staffer put it,"H was loved for his rumpled demeanor, his acerbic wit, his encyclopedic knowledge of the city and his refusal to suffer fools gladly."

Milton Lewis was 96.
