BIRMINGHAM, ALABAMA: Veteran TV newsman and former University of Alabama football player Christopher Sign reportedly killed himself on Saturday morning, June 12. He was 45, well-known for writing an expose on Bill Clinton. The book, titled ‘Secret on the Tarmac’, gives detail about a secret tarmac meeting between Clinton and then-Attorney General Loretta Lynch in June 2016, which was published two years ago.

In a statement, ABC 33/40 paid tribute to Sign by mentioning how important family was for the reporter. It noted, “To know Chris, was to love Chris. His family was the single most important thing in his life which is why he ended up returning to ABC 33/40 four years ago. Chris first worked here as a reporter in the late '90s and early 2000s. He left for Phoenix where he spent the next 13 years as a reporter and anchor, but the opportunity to rejoin ABC 33/40 as a weeknight anchor in 2017 was too good of an opportunity for him and his family to pass up.”

“What most people don’t know is Chris turned down an opportunity to work for one of the national networks to come to ABC 33/40, and he made that decision because of his family. That decision put him in a place where he could see his boys off to school in the mornings, watch them play baseball in the evenings, and take them fishing on the weekends,” it added.
