Carla Carpenter wrote on Facebook.Heartbroken over the sudden loss of a young newsman. Chris Myers died after a short illness. I worked with him in Chicago & hired him in LA. He lived and breathed news; he was a very smart, energetic wild guy which is what I liked about him. I like people who think big & often! It’s easier to take a big idea and carve it down than starting with the usual.
Good guy. No words big enough to comfort his partner Annie & her daughter.
