Former B&C Production Manager Harry Stevens Dies, 89

Harry Stevens, 89, former production manager at Broadcasting & Cable magazine and its predecessor, Broadcasting Magazine, died June 27 in Romney, W.Va.

Stevens was born in Washington and was a long-time resident of the city. He joined Broadcasting, then based in Washington, as a teenager and remained with the magazine until his retirement.

Survivors include a cousin, Robert Cheves.

"Harry was a fixture of the magazine from the day I started until the day I left and afterwards," said Kwentin Keenin, former circulation manager at B&C and now a circulation manager with B&C parent NewBay Media. "I considered him a friend, not just a co-worker."
