Remembering Long-Time Political Reporter Ed Vogel

For 37 years, much of what we learned about the happenings in the state Legislature came from the writings of Edison “Ed” Vogel.

He retired last year as state capital bureau chief for the Las Vegas Review-Journal and he died Sunday at the age of 66 at his home in Minden.

Family members say Vogel received cancer treatment for months and suffered a stroke brought on by the disease on Feb. 11.

Vogel, a member of the Nevada Newspaper Hall of Fame, covered every session of the Nevada Legislature from 1985 until his retirement.

Survivors include his wife of 30 years, Carol, two daughters, a son and four grandchildren.
