His daughter, Michelle, tells the Los Angeles Times that Machado died Saturday at a Los Angeles convalescent facility.

KCBS-TV 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."
