This is so awful. Don Ward has been a staple at our local news station KKTV for 15+ years for as long as I can remember him.
He was the best news anchor in every sense. RIP Don.

It was an honor to share the desk with Don Ward back in 2011-12. He was professional, caring, and a model of consistency. Something us young reporters needed to see up close to grow in our careers as we try to better serve our communities. Your legacy lives on. RIP

Sending condolences to my Colorado Springs media friends and to the Ward family. Never knew Don, but it’s clear he was loved by many and made a major impression on that community.

Don was a gentleman, a professional and such a wonderful journalist. He had the quickest wit and a work ethic I always admired. My heart goes out to my beloved former colleagues @KKTV11News and everyone who knew and loved Don Ward. Grateful to have known you, sir. Rest In Peace.

It is with great sadness that I have to tell you that my friend, colleague, and co-anchor Don Ward died today while hiking. I am shocked, saddened, and his family is in my thoughts and prayers. Don and I used to hike Waldo Canyon (before it burned) and Pikes Peak together #RIPDon

We will miss you, TV’s Don Ward.

Heartbroken tonight to learn of the passing of a good friend and former co-worker. You will never find a better person or solid professional than Don Ward. He made me a better broadcaster each night because he expected a lot of his team. RIP DW
