Sandy Drag is an icon? Yeah, she's a great news reader...but an icon?

Kessler: local personality, but not an icon.

Denny: most def an icon.

I can't believe he's leaving AGAIN.  I love that guy.  (Nerd that I am.)

Working in small-market broadcast news is never fun, unless you are an Uncle Denny. On top of that, the pay is not what it used to be.

I guess I wasn't a notable TV departure.  Tear.  Oh well, Boise, Idaho isn't as cold as Duluth.

You left Matt?  That was quick.  Reminds me of the 80s in local TV. Hopefully we're not headed back to that turnstyle

I was very sad to not see George when I was up this weekend. *sniff* *sigh*
