Chicago TV sports anchor found dead in Atlanta
Question of the Day
ATLANTA (AP) - A 38-year-old TV sports anchor from Chicago was found dead Thursday morning in his Atlanta hotel room, where he was staying while covering the Chicago Bulls-Atlanta Hawks NBA playoff series.
Hotel employees found him in his room at about 9:30 a.m. after he missed a wake-up call, WMAQ reported.
WMAQ colleagues were stunned by Hawks‘ death, said Frank Whittaker, station manager and vice president of news.
Hawks grew up in Buffalo, N.Y., graduated from the State University of New York at Buffalo and played semi-pro football in Lockport, N.Y., the Chicago Tribune reported.
Before joining WMAQ, the ex-Marine and three-time Emmy winner worked at television stations in the California Bay Area; Raleigh, N.C.; Jacksonville, Fla.; and Palm Springs, Calif.
