Tampa! "Desperate & Dateless" just doesn't
seem that long ago! Are any of our matches still together?
Coincidentally, I ran into another old Tampa radio personality,
Pat Barry, the other day. He's still doing radio here in
Cincinnati, and told me he recently did a "Desperate & Dateless" segment
on his show here. The legacy lives!
After Tampa, I joined KYW Newsradio in Philadelphia. The
very favorite part of my stay there was as Health and Science
Reporter. A lot of the major pharmaceutical companies and
research hospitals are around Philly, so it was a great assignment.
Nonetheless, I had few second thoughts when offered the chance
to move into news management with the station (which was
later bought by CBS and then became part of the Viacom kingdom).
While at KYW, my husband Jim and I had
our only child, Jeffrey James. When JJ was 2, we decided
to move back to
the Midwest so he could get to know the rest of his family
here. After a short stint in radio and TV in Cincinnati,
I was offered the opportunity to join Merrill Lynch. I've
been here 14 years now, and am a Senior Financial Advisor.
Interestingly enough, it was one of my best friends and client
in Tampa who suggested I get in touch with Tedd Webb. I did,
so here I am (thanks to Tedd's dogged persistence).
Here at Merrill Lynch I do financial and investment planning
for clients. I get to Florida fairly frequently to visit
old friends and see current clients, so if you need financial
assistance, please call. Tedd, is it ok to leave my toll-free
Best wishes to everyone from Cincinnati!
