Lee Kinard, alumnus of UNCG and a longtime news anchor for WFMY News 2, died Saturday. “A legend in Piedmont-Triad broadcasting, Kinard began working at WFMY in April 1956 when he was 25. … In his 43 years at WFMY, Kinard helped the CBS affiliate become the Triad’s most-watched news source,” the News and Record reports.
He was an outstanding supporter of UNCG. A section of Spring Garden Street, which passes through our campus, is named for him.
