FOX19 Now is paying tribute to a friend and colleague with a permanent plaque in our newsroom.
25-year-old Brad Hawley passed away earlier this year after a fight with leukemia. We considered Brad a "jack of all trades" at FOX19 Now – he was a digital content producer but also excelled at sports photography, production and video editing.
The new plaque shows Brad's smiling face and includes his personal motto: "No Bad Days."
It's located near the front of our newsroom so that anyone who walks through the door will be reminded of Brad's positive attitude and bright spirit.
FOX19 Now General Manager Debbie Bush, News Director Steve Hyvonen and Sports Director Joe Danneman officially dedicated the plaque on Friday. Brad's parents, Ray and Linda, his sister, Stacie, and girlfriend, Katie, joined the dedication.
