His daughter, Michelle, tells the Los Angeles Times (http://lat.ms/13jwSEN ) that Machado died Saturday from complications of pneumonia at a Los Angeles convalescent facility.
KCBS-TV (http://cbsloc.al/10AM106 ) says Machado was of Chinese and Portuguese descent and was LA's first Asian-American newscaster. Over a decades-long career, he was a newsman, producer, TV show host and soccer commentator. He worked at KCBS-TV, its predecessor and at what is now KCAL-TV.
He also played a newsman in TV shows and movies, including the "Robocop" films, "Oh, God!" and "Scarface."
