Chester Collier, 80, dog show producer
Mr. Collier was a longtime network-television producer and executive with media outlets including CNBC and Fox News. As president of Group W and Westinghouse Broadcasting, he also oversaw the development and production of the “Regis Philbin Show” and the “Merv Griffin Show.”
Always a dog lover, Mr. Collier took his passion to the competitive level, showing Bouviers des Flandres in the 1960s and winning more than 50 Bests in Show. He later turned the annual Westminster Kennel Club dog show into a sold-out Madison Square Garden event with millions of viewers on live television.
