“Hi, Dartmouth friends. I just learned a moment ago that Tim Reynolds, the former General Manager of WDCR/WFRD just passed away. I am beyond words. I never would have done radio if I hadn’t met Tim. He was a great guy and someone who loved broadcasting and music. I hadn’t talked to him in years, but the impact he had on me was massive. RIP my friend..” – Neel Chatterjee ’91

“I wake to heartbreaking news: my friend Tim Reynolds is gone. So many adventures- from marching band to early morning radio shifts to weddings to watching the Halloween parade in DC, even cooky baking. And shared roots in western New York.  And yet I know my sadness is shared by so many thanks to the power of social media.” – Priscilla Huff ’91

“One of the nicest guys, an amazing alum and mentor Tim Reynolds is gone. When I think of WDCR/WFRD radio, he’s the first person that comes to mind. A kind person, a friendly face, and a diehard music lover. Rest in peace Tim.” – Vivian Lee ’97

“Tim was really one of the good ones.  He reached out to me as I was a senior taking on leadership of the sports department and he continued to give me guidance and strength when we worked together on the Board of Overseers.  I’m sad to learn he is no longer with us – he dedicated a good part of his life to Dartmouth Broadcasting not just during his tenure in Hanover but well after.” – Len Mead ’94

“Running 99 Rock my junior year with Tim as GM was one of the best times in my 30 years in radio and that’s saying something.  He was an amazing thinker, slyly hilarious and always, always, always, positive and looking forward.   Creative, innovative, supportive and more.  I can’t believe this news although it’s all too real.  I’ll miss you buddy.” – Eric Wellman ’91

“I’ve been at a complete loss of words, and in shock at the news and loss of such an amazing person in my life. Tim Reynolds ’91 was a huge part of the radio stations at Dartmouth. In fact, it was while he was the Chairman of the Board, he convinced me to join 99Rock. Not just a friend, but a brother, Tim was family and he always made it a point to drop by when he was back up north and see how we were doing…To say I’m going to miss him would be an understatement. He truly rocked!! We love you, Tim. Godspeed my friend.” – Heath Cole

“I worked with Tim at the station during those years. He was a class act then, and I knew he was s going to do great things. God, gonna miss you dude. R.I.P. brother❤.” – Dorien Jaye

“Tim was many years my junior at Dartmouth, but I got to know him in the years he served on Dartmouth Broadcasting’s Board of Overseers. Tim was committed to making sure future generations of Dartmouth students would have the opportunity to learn the media business as an extracurricular activity, not as a credit course. He traveled a lot on business in his successful career but always found time to make it to Hanover for Overseers meetings.” – Stuart Zuckerman ’70

“Just over two years I reconnected with Tim via Instagram. And today, I’m heartbroken to hear he’s suddenly gone forever. He was a such an incredibly happy guy, always willing and delighted to bring happiness to your life through music.  As GM of our college radio station, Tim ran a competition to design a poster for our AM station, 1340 WDCR. He and the other judges chose mine. I was so honored. This place I called home for 4 years whilst I struggled to make it out of Dartmouth alive, had decided to go with my design. As we say in the UK, I was chuffed to bits. This is a photo he sent me, only a couple years ago, to tell me that that poster was still hanging in the WDCR offices.  Looking back, over the years, I’ve realized that my music-loving friends have been some of the best friends of my life. Tim was one of those guys. RIP Tim, and I hope the music’s awesome wherever you are tonight.  Much love, and thank you for the friendship and smiles all those years ago.” – Paul Zimmerman ’91
