OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - Longtime Oklahoma political journalist, broadcaster and author Mike McCarville has died.

McCarville's daughter, Shelli Aliff, says McCarville died Wednesday morning after suffering complications from emphysema and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease. He was 76.

McCarville's career included work for various Oklahoma newspapers and broadcast stations, including serving as assistant news director of KWTV television and as program director, reporter and conservative talk show host on KTOK radio.

He created the online political blog "The McCarville Report," which first announced his death.

Among those sending condolences are Gov. Mary Fallin and U.S. Sen. James Lankford. Carville's survivors also include his wife.

No funeral services have been announced.
