WDAF's Don Harman is Dead
This "rumor" first appeared on some blogs late Tuesday night... that WDAF-TV morning weatherperson Don Harman had passed away.
Other than the Pitch- virtually no other Kansas City news media is reporting this story and there's been absolutely no mention on Channel 4's morning newscast I've been enduring for the past 45 minutes (and ended at 10 a.m. without nary a mention of Mr. Harman!).
It seems that the fill-in weather person Karli Ritter(?)seems rather sad this morning (forced smiles)- but there appears to be the usual buffoonery around the "news" desk.
Anyway- the rumor mill from last night had it that somehow 41-year-old Mr. Harman committed suicide- but that hasn't been confirmed either since it's (mostly the) policy of local news media to not report suicides.
All the above information had been confirmed as of Wednesday afternoon.
Mr. Harman passed away as a result of suicide in his south Kansas City home around 5 p.m. Tuesday.
Regardless- I'm sure I feel as you do in passing on my most sincere condolences to Don Harman's friends and family in this overwhelming time....
