Calvin Sneed retires from Channel 9

I don’t have a lot of information just yet, but Calvin Sneed has announced he is retiring from WTVC Channel 9 on February 28th.  Calvin first worked there in the early 1970s, left, and came back in 1992.  He’s been in Chattanooga ever since, and has been a great friend and competitor.

He is also writing a coffee table book, with lots of photographs of bridges, which he describes as his passion.  Good luck Calvin!

    That picture of Calvin with the Camera is so cute. You boys have grown up together in the Chattanooga News World.

    I love Calvin and will miss him with Kim on the news. I hope to still see him when needing service done on his vehicles as I have done over the past years! Can’t wait to see his book!

    Calvin, we’re going to miss you! Love your consumer watch, you even came to my place of work many years ago. It is East Brainerd Animal Hospital! You’re a great reporter and we know when we “call Calvin” you will never let us down. Keep up the great work, can’t wait to see your bridge book!!
