WANE Photographer Ron Harmeyer Dies at 68

WANE photographer Ron Harmeyer, who spent 48 years at the Fort Wayne CBS affiliate before retiring earlier this year, died recently. He was 68.

Harmeyer was inducted to the Indiana Associated Press Hall of Fame last year for his work as a photographer for the station. WANE remembered him in a recent tribute segment (video above).

“He always appreciated the opportunities this profession offered as well as the wonderful experiences it creates,” WKRG news director Mike Rausch, a former colleague of Harmeyer’s, wrote in a memo to WKRG staffers last week. “I hope there’s some ‘Ron’ in all of us.”
