Long time... No blog!

Wow! It's been a month since I updated my blog! It's been a busy June - let us recap.
Today (6/30) my dad officially retired. He's been a dentist in Narrows since the early 70s, and recently decided it was time to close his practice and become "Granddaddy Crank" full time. Dad and mom joined us in downtown Roanoke tonight for a family celebration. Congrats dad on a successful career. Now it's time to PARTY!

In other news, we found out Mike Stevens is leaving NEWS7. Mike, or "The BIG 7" as most of us call him, is one of the reasons I've always wanted to work at WDBJ. I grew up watching him. He's an amazing broadcaster, but more importantly, an even nicer person. I know the viewers will miss him. Since making the announcement of leaving us to go work for the City of Salem, I've noticed his "fan mail" growing in our mail room. Best wishes to you, Mike.
There have been other happenings this month, but those are the most notable. I hope your summer is off to a grand start! Make it a great July!
