COLUMBUS (WCMH)– The Columbus Blue Jackets honored WBNS Chief Meteorologist Chris Bradley Saturday night with a moment of silence at their game against the Washington Capitals.
Bradley died Wednesday at his Worthington home with his family by his side. He was 53.
Bradley joined WBNS as the station’s chief meteorologist in July 2006. He previously worked at WSYX in Columbus and stations in Indiana and Michigan.
He was an active member of the charitable community and his church.
He was very open about his health struggle. After 21 months of treatment for Acute Myeloid Leukemia, Bradley announced on November 18 that he entered hospice care, surrounded by his loving husband, Jason, their son, Spencer, and daughter, Maria.
In a recent interview, Bradley was asked about his love and the community and his deep faith.
“Well I just, I looked at my life and I said I do have a big following, and how can I affect them? And, that’s been my approach to try to encourage people, make them feel more comfortable you know – and maybe make changes in their life that could save their life,” said Bradley.
Chris was excited to learn that all three Columbus news stations will be coming together Monday, December 10 to promote bone marrow donations.
