Set to work for CNN, Feeney dies before he gets the chance

Set to begin his dream job of working for CNN in Atlanta, Michael Feeney fell ill after getting accepted into the gig, where he would work for CNN.com as an entertainment reporter.

“Mike did everything to help everyone,” his mother, Reba Willis, said Sunday. “He did whatever he could with any person who he came across who wanted to know anything about journalism and about life.”

Feeney had been in Holy Name Medical Center in Teaneck, N.J., since Tuesday, she said. He went into cardiac arrest at 1:15 p.m, the NY Daily News reports.
