Tonight was my last night as host of Eye On Toledo on NewsTalk 1370 WSPD.
Last month my husband accepted a new project for his business and it requires him to travel more often. After having lost a dear friend last week to cancer, we realize more acutely just how important it is to spend time with those you love. Accordingly, I will be traveling with him when he's gone for extended periods of time.
Of course, that means that I won't be available to do a daily radio show.
I'm so very appreciative of Brian Wilson and WSPD for giving me the opportunity to do the show and for everything I learned.
I'm especially grateful for the listeners who make the show worth doing. It is the WSPD audience - those who listen, email and call, who have restored my faith that all is not lost for Toledo and Lucas County. All of you who think and reason and use logic – and, most importantly, common sense – and who are taking positive action to affect real change, have restored my hope in the future of our community. I want to encourage you to continue to call and email and pester our elected officials and candidates to do the right things – thanking them when they do and replacing them when they don’t.
I hope you will be as welcoming and supportive of the new host as you were to me.
It should go without saying that I will continue the blog. In fact, many of the points I made on air will now end up being made here, instead ... they'll just be in writing, rather than spoken word.
So stay tuned - it's going to be an interesting summer!
