CNN producer loses battle with cancer

(CNN) - Today brings sad news for the CNN family. CNN Senior Producer Hunter Waters passed away this morning after battling Esophageal cancer since the fall. Hunter was the lead political producer for CNN's Larry King Live and produced interviews with the top people in American politics, from Presidents Obama, Bush, and Clinton to candidates for the White House and beyond. Hunter worked at CNN for over a decade, first starting as an intern. He met his wonderful wife, Kris Coratti while both worked in CNN's Washington bureau. Hunter was an avid boater and loved few things more than boating on the Potomac River with Kris. All of our hearts go out to Kris as well as Hunter's family.

    I am sorry for your loss. But as this is a journalism site, somebody needs to copy edit this posting.

    Hunter was a friend of mine since the 5th grade. He always had a smile on his face and was always full of positive energy. His death is a great loss to many of our friends. God bless his sweet family in this time of loss and hardship.
