"I got bad news yesterday, And this comes from the file of hug the ones you love because there may not be a tomorrow. An old friend and colleague out of the Fort Myers market, Jim Reif, died yesterday. He was riding his bicycle, hit a pothole, crashed, head injuries, gone. Jim Reif Worked in the Fort Myers market for 35 years. 3 big stations. Spent 20 years at WINK. He was known for pioneering a proactive hurricane awareness program with the National Hurricane Weather Center. And I tell you, I bet he saved lives. He was the Chief Meteorologist all over town. His family asks that we remember him. His fiance is left behind. To our friends at WBBH and WINK tv and ABC-7. We extend our thoughts and prayers. Jim Reif, a great guy, was 61.
