Walker Merryman passes away

Longtime RTDNA supporter and friend Walker Merryman has died at his winter home in Puerto Rico. Merryman was a former radio news director in Nebraska and longtime executive for the Tobacco Insitute. He attended many RTDNA national conventions and was perhaps best known among members as the founder of the informal RTDNA choir, which sang together in a hotel suite following several conventions. His close friends say Merryman was an avid reader, who exchanged frequent emails, sharing a joke whenever he could.

A memorial service will be held on Sunday, April 21 at Mount Vernon Country Club in Alexandria, Virginia.
