RIP, Reporter Carlos Hernandez Gomez

carloshernandezgomez.jpgFrom CLTV:  "Carlos Hernandez Gomez, a political reporter for CLTV, died today after more than a yearlong bout with cancer. He was 36.Mr. Hernandez Gomez was easily recognized for his trademark fedora,
thick black glasses, bow ties and machine-gun style of questioning
public figures. He filled his reports with his vast knowledge of local
political characters and the city's rich political history.A vibrant reporter, Mr. Hernandez Gomez covered major national and
local stories, but mostly focused on local and state politics."

I didn't know Carlos very well -- we crossed paths a few times at WBEZ before he (mysteriously) left for CLTV.  But he seemed like a smart, caring guy, and I'm thinking about him and his colleagues today.

  • Carlos Hernandez Gomez will be missed. He seemed so genuine. I always loved his intro " I am Carlos Hernandez Gomez " He said his name with so much feeling! It always put a smile on my face.
