An Open Thank You Note

Most of us in the Tristate just finished a long week.

As Rob put it this morning, "Longest week of my life."

It seemed like forever for Friday to get here, especially when our team did extended coverage on back-to-back days for the pesky snowstorm covering our area.

It made for some exhausting days, with everyone pushed to their limit. While you might have played in the snow, we worked to keep all angles covered.

That's why I want to take a moment to thank some people our viewers never see--our great production and behind the scenes team. We have so many great people working at our station, too many to all name here.

Without them, Rob, Sheila, Bruce, Frank, Meghan, and I would never be able to do what we do every day. They have to work long hours when breaking news happens, often with no accolades, no recognition. It's not an easy or glamorous job. It's not always fun. Sometimes the stress gets to them just as much as it gets to us.

So to them, I say thank you.

Thank you for coming in early, then staying late. Thank you for changing gears with seconds to spare. Thank you for putting up with the snow and the inconvenience. You all are part of what makes FOX19 successful.

We can't do the news without you.
