Film critic Roger Ebert died Thursday after a long battle with cancer, TVGuide.com has confirmed. He was 70.
Roger Ebert says that his cancer has returned, so it's time to slow down and take a "leave of presence."
"The immediate reason for my 'leave of presence' is my health," he writes on his Chicago Sun-Times blog. "The painful fracture that made it difficult for me to walk has recently been revealed to be a cancer. It is being treated with radiation, which has made it impossible for me to attend as many movies as I used to... What in the world is a leave of presence? It means I am not going away. My intent is to continue to write selected reviews, but to leave the rest to a talented team of writers handpicked and greatly admired by me."
Roger Ebert's At the Movies will go on an indefinite hiatus at the end of the year, Ebert announced on his blog.
"Our public television program Ebert Presents At The Movies will go on hiatus while we find necessary funding," Ebert wrote Wednesday. "It was a sad but necessary moment of realism."
Roger Ebert: We can't afford to finance At the Movies anymore
Ebert Presents: At the Movies may go off the air at the end of the season, Roger Ebert writes on his blog.
Since the show's January debut, it has been financed solely by a $25,000 backing from Kanbar Charitable Trust. The rest has come from Ebert and his wife Chaz, who are both executive producers on the show.
"We can't afford to support it any longer," Ebert writes. "That's what it comes down to."
