ABC11 was saddened to hear Wednesday that former reporter Ken Ward has suddenly died.

According to WSOC-TV in Charlotte, the 44-year-old passed away of unknown causes.

Ward left ABC11 in 2008. Until recently, he was working at WSOC in Charlotte, but had recently accepted a position with the ABC station in Tampa.

According to a short bio Ken wrote for us during his tenure here, he actually began his career in journalism as a teacher. For several years, he taught television and radio at Ossining High School in New York. From there, he branched out into the world of radio news working as an on-air reporter and then moved on to television.

Ward leaves behind a wife and son.
