Reporter that broke the Clinton-Lynch tarmac story has passed away
LINK

The morning of Saturday, June 12, we learned our dear friend and colleague Christopher Sign passed away overnight.

His family was the single most important thing in his life which is why he ended up returning to ABC 33/40 four years ago. Chris first worked here as a reporter in the late '90s and early 2000s.

He left for Phoenix where he spent the next 13 years as a reporter and anchor, but the opportunity to rejoin ABC 33/40 as a weeknight anchor in 2017 was too good of an opportunity for him and his family to pass up.

What most people don’t know is Chris turned down an opportunity to work for one of the national networks to come to ABC 33/40, and he made that decision because of his family.

That decision put him in a place where he could see his boys off to school in the mornings, watch them play baseball in the evenings, and take them fishing on the weekends.

...

... all things he learned while he was at the University of Alabama playing football for Coach Gene Stallings. Chris often gave Coach Stallings credit for getting him into the television news business.

Today, our hearts are heavy and our prayers are with his wife Laura, their three boys, and their families.

They took him out. No doubt about it. He knew better than to report on that story

Harder in the front of the head because you can see yourself pulling the trigger the first time.

I didn't see any official cause of death, but of course, why would there be?

Christopher Sign, Birmingham TV anchor and former Alabama football player, dead in apparent suicide

Veteran TV newsman and former University of Alabama football player Christopher Sign died Saturday morning in an apparent suicide, according to police.

At 8:13 a.m. Saturday, the Hoover 911 center received a call of a person down at a residence on Scout Trace. Hoover police and fire personnel arrived to find the 45-year-old Sign dead.

Hoover police Lt. Keith Czeskleba said the death is being investigated as a suicide.

ABC 33/40 in 2017 announced Sign was returning to Birmingham from Phoenix as the evening anchor, replacing Dave Baird after he retired.

Sign co-anchored broadcasts with Brenda Ladun and Pam Huff.

“Our deepest sympathy is shared with Chris’s loving family and close friends,” said Sinclair Broadcast Group Vice President and General Manager Eric S. Land.

“We have lost a revered colleague whose indelible imprint will serve forever as a hallmark of decency, honesty and journalist integrity. We can only hope to carry on Chris’s legacy. May his memory be for blessing,” Land said.

Not really, once worked with a suicide hotline, and know of a couple of cases. Whole bunch of circumstances where you can be shot in the head, and not die
