KTLA Reporter Sam Rubin Cause of Death Revealed

Longtime KTLA reporter Sam Rubin‘s cause of death has been revealed.

According to a Los Angeles Department of Medical Examiner Office, the anchor and entertainment reporter died naturally from ischemic heart disease due to atherosclerotic coronary artery disease, which results in a lethal heartbeat due to lack of blood and oxygen flowing to the heart.

Ischemic heart disease is caused by narrowed arteries, leading to less blood and oxygen reaching the heart muscle, according to the American Heart Association.

“Mr. Rubin arrived at a local hospital with stomach pain the morning of May 10 after calling 9-1-1 as advised by his doctor,” the medical examiner’s office said in a press release. “He later was pronounced dead in the emergency room.”

News of the KTLA reporter’s death came on May 10, when TMZ revealed he had a heart attack. The popular entertainment anchor had been at the network since 1991. The day he died, several celebrities called into KTLA to pay tribute to Rubin, including Henry Winkler, Cheryl Burke and Jerry O’Connell.

“KTLA 5 is profoundly saddened to report the death of Sam Rubin,” the channel wrote on X (formerly Twitter) at the time. “Sam was a giant in the local news industry and the entertainment world and a fixture of Los Angeles morning television for decades. His laugh, charm and caring personality touched all who knew him. Sam was a loving husband and father: the roles he cherished the most. Our thoughts are with Sam’s family during this difficult time.”
