eorge Riba retired this week, after a total of 42 years on the air in Dallas-Ft. Worth. It’s estimated that while at Channel 8 for the last 37 years, George covered around 8,000 stories. A true professional, George isn’t just one of the nicest people in TV. He’s one of the nicest people, period. I’ve had the pleasure of knowing him since I was at Channel 5 in the mid-70’s, and enjoy seeing him every time I do. I sure hope he does more than just pop up now and again. He’s too gifted for that. As others have said, George has never gotten in the way of his stories – and practically no one has ever seen him even get mad.

Yesterday I sent a text to an old friend with whom I hadn’t spoken with in months regarding Harper Lee’s upcoming sequel. (We’re lovers of ‘To Kill A Mockingbird’) Before long, our texts took an extreme left turn into discussing “the play.” The one that decided the Super Bowl. It’s still on everyone’s mind. We’ll be YouTubing it as long as YouTube exists. Here’s a piece of our back & forth.
Two years have flown by since Valerie Harper announced that she had brain cancer, and did so in such an inspiring way.
They’d been perfecting their God-given gifts and chemistry since pre-1960, but 1964 was revolution-ary for the Beatles (and the rest of us!)
Somehow I feel more successful today just knowing this person. I mean, it’s not every day you publish a book.
The impossibly good-looking Kevin Costner (I had to add that after seeing his photo) would very much enjoy today’s KLUV contest. It would qualify him for a “Trip for Four for Frozen Fun at Disney California.”
