I know not everyone may know who this is, but he was a fantastic news anchor and long time presence in Chicago's local news teams. He passed away last night in Wisconsin in a tragic snow mobiling accident. I watched Randy every morning and the news will not be the same without him. http://www.chicagotribune.com/news/chi-salerno_26_bothjan26,0,3085979.story By Liam Ford and Deborah Horan | Tribune reporters 8:54 PM CST, January 25, 2008 TV news anchor Randy Salerno and his friend Scott Hirschey grew up less than two blocks apart in Crystal Lake. Always close, they coached a boys baseball team together last summer. And on Thursday, on a long-planned winter getaway, they were on the same snowmobile when it slammed into a pine tree in northern Wisconsin, killing Salerno, 45, and leaving Hirschey, 44, seriously injured. Hirschey was at the controls when the snowmobile went off a trail late at night and crashed in what police said was an alcohol-related incident. On Friday, Hirschey was arrested in his friend's death and charged with homicide by intoxicated use of a vehicle, a felony that carries up to 25 years in prison.
