What happened to Chris Rose?
Respected journalist Chris Rose from Maine passed away. We share the sad news of the passing of renowned Maine journalist Chris Rose, who passed away on Wednesday after suffering a cardiac incident.
Before joining NEWS CENTER Maine, where he shared his abilities for more than 30 years, Chris began his television news career in Worcester, Massachusetts, and worked as a writer and producer at WBZ-TV in Boston.
Chris Rose cause of death
Rose worked for News Center Maine (WCSH-TV) for more than three decades before most recently working in public relations at the University of New England.
According to the Portland TV station where he spent more than three decades working, respected veteran television journalist Chris Rose passed away on Wednesday following a cardiac attack. Rose’s passing was reported by News Center Maine in a Thursday afternoon blog post.
We are thinking about Chris’s kids, Duffy and Miranda, who she left behind when she passed away at age 63. “Our sincere condolences to the family”
Chris Rose: Who was he?
He began working for WCSH in 1986 as a newscast producer before deciding to pursue his destiny and start working in front of the camera. We all benefited from his decision.
When announcing Chris’ resignation from NEWS CENTER Maine in 2018, Chris’ former coworker and longtime anchor Pat Callaghan said, “No one has been more reliable.”
You could always count on him to meet deadlines, write accurate, captivating, and comprehensive stories, and never use unnecessary words. He was probably using his producer training there.
The Maine Association of Broadcasters Hall of Fame inducted him in 2017 in recognition of his famous reporting. In 2018, Callaghan said, “For years I have believed that if we offered an MVP award to a NEWS CENTER reporter, Chris Rose would be in the running every year.”
Chris joined the University of New England after leaving NEWS CENTER Maine to work as a public relations specialist there. According to his faculty bio, Chris “is committed to presenting tales about the fantastic things happening at UNE.” “That involves coming up with story ideas, talking to faculty, staff, and students, and drafting press releases and articles.”
Chris devoted equal attention to the more humorous incidents, such as when Robin Williams came to Maine to film a movie, as well as several high-profile events that had an influence on our state and region, such as the sinking of the El Faro and the Boston Marathon bombing. No matter how serious or humorous, intriguing or seemingly unimportant, Chris gave every story he covered his best.
