All Things New Hampshire: Wednesday, Dec. 10, 2014


It's been a somber few days here at NH1 News. The producer of our 10pm news on WBIN-TV, Ed Horan, passed away unexpectedly over the weekend. Ed was just 24 years old and had been with our team for a little over 2 months after graduating from Lyndon State College last December.

Ed and I worked largely opposite schedules, so I didn't get to know him as well as others did in our newsroom-but all who came in contact with him here have said the same thing: Ed was one of nicest, most upbeat people they've ever met. I'm sure wherever he is now, they're saying the same thing about him. My best wishes go out to Ed's family, and his friends, during this difficult time.
