Today we learned we lost two of our family members at KARK/FOX16 & it still doesn’t feel real. My mom & I both worked with Chris Scott over the years, & I’d just started working with Haven Hughes a few months ago. I’ll remember them forever. Haven was so excited to work at our station. She came in every single day happy and ready to learn. Chris had spent years in this business and was a pro… he had such a gentle and quiet spirit that was so refreshing. Please pray for their families tonight & our station. Walking past their empty desks today reminded me how much we already miss them.

My whole life is to have the right words, but I don’t have hardly any words right now because I’m in so much shock and sadness to hear the news of my good friend Chris Scott who passed away today. My heart is so heavy because he was the kindest soul and such a talented journalist. I will certainly miss him trying to find me football or basketball or baseball tickets at the last minute when I needed them. Life isn’t fair. I’ll forever save you a seat now. Rest easy, friend.

Today our 9 pm producer Chris Scott also passed away. I only communicated with him through emails since we worked opposite shifts, but I’ve heard so many wonderful stories about him from those who worked with him for decades.

My heart hurts for my TV family. Times like these put life into perspective. Please keep the Hughes and Scott families in your prayers, along with our TV family.
