Sad day losing two influential people to me. Greg Blackwood was the guy behind the lens for Channel 9 sports. He always made me laugh. Sue Donohoe was at the Southland. She hammered home the attention to detail philosophy. Both were legends in their fields. Both way too young.

Colleague. Friend. Kick ass human. That was @gbokc .We worked together for six yrs at @NEWS9 where he was chief photographer. He was all smiles, big heart & pure class. He once brought Starbucks to news crews covering a blizzard. Love you, brother. RIP #CancerSucks #GregBlackwood pic.twitter.com/YgapMnhXap

My thoughts and prayers to @DanaHertneky and her family, the people of @NEWS9 and the @OUontheAir crew on the passing of Greg Blackwood. You know good work when you see it and Greg definitely did his jobs well, both with KWTV and the Sooner Network. #RIP

I’ll always be thankful for the drive to Ames this year.
I got to spend 16 hours in a car with Greg Blackwood. I hadn’t really spent much time with him except for when we were doing the OU broadcasts. He was obviously in a lot of discomfort and we talked about his cancer battle
