Lighting Director Passes Away

CBS 2's Kristine Johnson reported minutes ago that a lighting director for the station passed away yesterday. Pat Ryan, who worked on CBS 2's weekend morning newscasts as well as for the CBS network, "worked tirelessly to make sure that our anchors and studio guests looked great," Johnson said. The Giants and Mets fan leaves behind a wife and five-year-old son. He was 45 years old.

Megan Glaros tweeted about Ryan's passing earlier today:
So sad one of the crew guys on our weekend show passed away.

My brother-in-law Patrick will be missed by everyone he touched. We will always be there for his wife and son. We thank Pat for all he gave to the world and his wonderful laugh. Pat tried so very hard to make his life better each day and leaves us far too soon.
