I started in sports when I first came back to Philadelphia. The most special moment that I’ve had was when the Eagles won the Super Bowl. My father and I are big sports fans. He just passed away six months ago at 98 years old. He was a professor of agriculture and natural resources, but he loved sports. And, like so many people, he had waited and waited for a win. I was at the station working in case news broke that people were celebrating—which they did—but I was calling him after every quarter, and we were calling about every play. I’ve had a lot of great moments—I’ll have been here 33 years in July—but the fact that I could share that with him was so special. It seems like yesterday I started at KYW, channel 3. It’s been like a dream come true for me. And, right now, the dream continues. But when the dream stops, you can find me on a golf course.
