Ed McMahon dies in LA at 86

LOS ANGELES (AP) - Ed McMahon, the loyal "Tonight Show"
sidekick who bolstered boss Johnny Carson with guffaws and a
resounding "H-e-e-e-e-e-ere's Johnny!" for 30 years, has died at
a Los Angeles hospital. He was 86.

Publicist Howard Bragman says McMahon died early Tuesday at
Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center surrounded by his family.

Bragman didn't give a cause of death, saying only that McMahon
had a "multitude of health problems the last few months."
