Former WRTV General Manager Dies Suddenly

Don Lundy Was 67

Don Lundy, former WRTV vice president and general manager, died suddenly Thursday at the age of 67.

Lundy retired from WRTV in December 2010 after 31 years with McGraw-Hill, WRTV's former parent company, including nine as GM in Indianapolis.

Lundy and his wife, Rosemary, had moved to San Diego to be closer to their children and grandchildren. His death was unexpected, the family said.

Born in Tulsa, Okla., Lundy began his career in TV at KTUL-TV when he was still in high school.

After meeting Rosemary at Oklahoma State University, the two married and moved around the globe as Lundy served in the U.S. Air Force in Germany, Texas and Ohio.

Lundy started his career at McGraw-Hill in 1980 as WRTV production manager, before departing for 19 years to work at TV stations in San Diego and Bakersfield, Calif. He returned to WRTV in 2001.

The family is planning a graveside service in Oklahoma in the near future.
