Here we ago again…
Yet another well-known Kansas City personality – Fox 4 weather wonk Don Harman – has taken his own life.
"He was a really good guy, a funny guy and he had a nice edge to him," says fellow meteroologist Gary Lezak of KSHB TV, Channel 41. "He’s one of the most popular personalities in the city – he just suffered from depression. He knew weather really well. I’m in shock and I’m going to miss him. It’s just incredible – I almost can’t believe it. And he leaves two families behind; his Fox 4 family and his own family."
Harman joined Fox 4 in 1999, following Lezak’s departure and became an integral part of Fox 4’s morning crew with Mark Alford and Loren Halifax.
Oddly, just prior to the station announcing Harman’s death, its Web site pitched a coming story entitled, "Holiday Can Bring Stress, Sadness."
