CNN Radio's Ed McCarthy Dies

From the CNN Radio Affiliates Web site:


CNN Radio’s Ed McCarthy passed away July 9th at Emory Hospital in Snellville, Georgia. Services are pending.

Ed joined CNN Radio in 1986 working as a news and business anchor. He most recently served as a National Correspondent based in Atlanta. Ed traveled the country covering all kinds of stories for CNN from wildfires and celebrity trials, to tornadoes and hurricanes. One of Ed’s biggest joys was covering The Masters in Augusta Georgia.

Before joining CNN Radio, Ed was news director and co-host of a morning show at WIRA/WOVV Radio in Fort Pierce, Fla. From 1985-1986, McCarthy served as a weather anchor at WTVX-TV in Fort Pierce. From 1982-1985, McCarthy was news director at WSTU/WHLG Radio in Stuart, Fla. He has also served as news director at WIRK Radio in West Palm Beach, Fla.

Ed was more than a co-worker, but a friend who always had a smile and a story to offer. He will be missed.

I worked with Eddie at WSTU/WHLG. We lost touch after that until I called him for a job opportunity. Even though we hadn't seen each other in years, he worked hard to find leads for me..I sure will miss that laugh....

Thank you for your wonderful memories of Ed. The McCarthy family would like to thank everyone for their warm thoughts, prayers, and condolences. We will all miss Ed's warmth, laughter, and so much more. We cannot possibly thank everyone that has sent their love, but we want everyone to know how much it has comforted us.
