I'm saddened to hear of Reid Chapman's passing. He was a tremendous asset to the early days of Fort Wayne TV, a tremendous contributor to the community and an all around nice guy.

I always enjoyed watching "Meet the Manager." It's sad that you don't see that kind of thing on local television anymore. It made people feel connected with the station. He will be missed.

I want to add my thoughts of sympathy and admiration for this man. A gentleman is certainly what Reid always was....a good manager and a more wonderful human being during some formative but tough news presentation days in the '70s. My time as anchor/news producer at WANE-TV was short, but he left me some long and pleasant memories. -- Ron DeHart, '76-'77
